Announced last December by the Tasmanian Minister for the Arts, Elise Archer, Jason Imms has joined the Ministerial Arts and Cultural Advisory Council, representing digital games.
Joining representatives from across the Arts industry, such as music and film, design and architecture, visual arts, academia, and theatre sectors to name a few.
Commenting on his appointment, Jason Imms said, “I’m honoured to have been appointed to the newly established Ministerial Arts and Cultural Advisory Council for Tasmania. It’s extremely exciting that our state government is seeking cross-sectoral expertise that includes digital games.”
The new council aims to assist in ensuring the sustained growth of the sectors involved, and help to identify and highlight the varying contributions the sectors add to Tasmanian culture.
Imms continued, “Ultimately, it’s my dream that Tasmania will not only be a hospitable home for our local game makers, but also becomes an attractive relocation option for practitioners and studios from outside the state. My thanks to Minister for the Arts Elise Archer for her ongoing interest in expanding the impact and scope of Tasmanian arts and culture.”
