VDB Artistic Director announced as one of Ten Artists for Ten Days on the Island 2025 & 27

VDB Artistic Director Julia Fredersdorff has been announced as one of ten artists from around the world chosen by Ten Days on the Island festival as one of their inaugural "Ten Artists, Ten Days" program.

This bold concept aims to open a space for creativity, community, and connection across lutruwita/Tasmania by bringing together a diverse group of artists from different disciplines, generations, and places – from lutruwita/Tasmania, across Australia, and around the world. The artists have been thoughtfully selected for their passion as both makers and storytellers. They are visionary thinkers with an innovative approach to creative risk; and a fearless sense of leaning in from the edge. 

The Ten Artists will begin their adventure throughout the coming year with two gatherings designed to grow their connection to both the places and the people of lutruwita/Tasmania. These gatherings will facilitate the sharing of stories, ideas, and artistic expression while nurturing creative relationships and new friendships.

The resulting new works will be featured at the 2025 and 2027 Festivals. Head on over to the Ten Days on the Island website to learn more about the first four extraordinary artists.
