Rosalie Woodruff MP | Greens Health and Arts spokesperson
The cancellation of Tasmania’s premier winter festival, Dark Mofo is sad, but in all likelihood a necessary measure.
While it’s a blow to Tasmania’s arts scene and all its beneficiaries, Mona and Dark Lab have made a tough and pragmatic call.
As COVID-19 continues to spread, we should brace ourselves for other unexpected cancellations.
The Greens urge all Tasmanians to listen to public health officials, report any individual health concerns and take the precautions advised.
We look forward to Dark Mofo returning in 2021, with its usual - and unusual – spectacle.
