The Arts Factory
In 2014, Alasdair Doyle and Bobby-Jack Butchart founded The Arts Factory.
The Arts Factory is an artist run initiative (ARI) formed with the expressed purpose of providing a creative co-operative hub for young aspiring Tasmanian artists. It is the aim of The Arts Factory to empower aspiring artists by providing a collaborative environment with like minded individuals and by providing avenues to both create and promote their works. Since its inception, the ARI has hosted workshops, artist exhibitions, skill-swaps, a people's kitchen, jazz nights and Tasmania's inaugural Fête de la Musique.
