MONA GASP! Fun Run and Walk
GASP! TO MONA (4KM)
MONA TO GASP! TO MONA (8KM)
SUNDAY 16 MARCH, 8AM
Community spirit, is that you? Damn straight, it is. Introducing the Glenorchy City Council's MONA GASP! Fun Run and Walk, which, if you haven't worked it out already, is being supported by yours truly (MONA), and our friend GASP!, too.
Basically, the gist is: 2014 marks 150 years of Glenorchy - hip, hip, hooray! - and, as such, our much-loved municipality is throwing a myriad of events in celebration, with this here fun run being number one.
So, without further ado, register now to walk or run (or hop, skip or jump) from GASP! to MONA (4km) or MONA to GASP! and back (8km) on Sunday March 16 - either for yourself, the community, or the free breakfast and entertainment which awaits you at the finish-line. Go on, get amongst it. You know you want to.
An Ottoman Feast
SATURDAY 5 APRIL
FERRY DEPARTURE 6PM
Latitude 37 is returning to Hobart Baroque for a unique collaboration with MONA, the Museum of Old and New Art, with an evening of exotic food and music.
This adventurous group of musicians' tireless search for rare and unperformed compositions has, this time, led them to a collection of 17th century classical compositions from the Ottoman Empire.
For this performance, the Group will be joined by three musicians who specialise in the music and individual sound of ancient instruments like the oud (a lute-like instrument from northern Africa and southwest Asia) and the kanun (related to the zither).
Once the fun's over, you'll be treated to a lavish feast of Turkish treats - brought to you by MONA's Vince Trim and Philippe Leban, with wines matched by Sommelier Joseph Burton.
Ticket price includes all of the above, as well as transfers to and from MONA on the MR-1 Fast Ferry.
18 JANUARY-19 APRIL 2014
EVERY SATURDAY 12PM-5PM
By now, you've come to expect feats of strange wonder from MONA First Lady Kirsha Kaechele and her team of talented misfits. This year's MoMa is no different; but she's expanded her horizons to take in our beloved - but grubby - River Derwent. The result? The River Derwent Heavy Metals Project, which we're kicking off at our first market for the year.
