In 2013 Hobart’s citizens were introduced to the first ‘Dark Mofo’. The concept was bought to us by MONA’S owner David Walsh. This Tasmanian event was a celebration of the Winter Solstice and it was an event like no other. The initial reaction from the traditional population was mixed and expected, but the concept after eight years of Dark Mofo is now firmly a part of Hobart’s social fabric. The city has become a firm favourite as a destination on the Australian events and arts calendar.
