The Tasmanian Government have sealed the new five-year funding agreement with Mona, locking in continued funding for Dark Mofo.
Dark Mofo first launched in 2013, and it has been confirmed to continue until 2021.
The new funding deal includes Dark Mofo’s agreement to expand the number of interstate and overseas visitors to embrace winter in Tasmania, draw more visitors to the festival, and invest at least $250,000 in programming and support of Tasmanian arts-based organisations.
Dark Mofo 2015 returned an estimated $46 million to the economy and created around 400 new jobs, both full time and short term contracts.
Dark Mofo 2017 will kick off in and around Hobart on Thursday June 8 to Wednesday June 21, 2017. You can subscribe for updates via their website.
