Uncertain Future for Island Magazine

Island Magazine Logo

On Friday 6 September, as Island Magazine prepared to send the 158th issue of Island Magazine to the printer, the board learned of its failure to win a renewal of its four-year funding arrangement with Arts Tasmania. Until now, that support has underpinned the magazine’s financial viability.

Island Magazine‘s Chair, Geoff Heriot, concedes that the likely result will be a need to ‘suspend operations’, but have accepted an invitation from Arts Tasmania to meet and review the situation.

Issue 158 will appear from 30 September.
