Music Program: 2021

The Creek Road Art Orchestra

The Creek Road Art Orchestra will be Tasmania’s first ever Art Orchestra! 

The Creek Road Art Orchestra (CRAO) aims to encourage musical sharing and development of new work between musicians of culturally and linguistically diverse backgrounds.


The project, which is being supported by Arts Tasmania and the Australia Council for the Arts, will provide paid employment opportunities for musicians to:

  • Meet regularly through April-September 2021 to connect, share and develop stories.

  • Develop new musical work, based on a radical fusion of improvisation and traditional music.

  • Present the work in a series of live performances to be held in late October 2021.


Kickstart Arts is currently seeking expressions of interest from musicians on any instrument to participate as paid core orchestra members in our 2021 development and production of the Creek Road Art Orchestra (CRAO).

Two information sessions will be held from 1pm-2.30pm on: 

  • Sunday 21st March 2021, and

  • Sunday 28th March 2021

Both sessions are open to anyone and everyone

Location: Old School Room, Kickstart Arts Centre 

12 St John’s Avenue, New Town, TAS 7008
