What is HIP?

Hunter Island Press (HIP) is a not-for-profit organisation with our primary objective to establish and operate a professional public access print studio in Hobart. The studio provides a place for artists to create work and pass on their skills to the community. Membership allows for studio access and inclusion in HIP exhibitions.

 

 

Hunter Island Press acknowledges Australian’s Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples as the Traditional Custodians of the lands on which we live, learn and work. We pay our respect to their Elders, past and present, and to our shared future.
