Moonah Taste of the World ONLINE
Glenorchy City Council is proud to present Moonah Taste of the World Online – a series of short films depicting the colour and culture of the festival.
Moonah Taste of the World Festival is Southern Tasmania’s most popular multicultural festival, with thousands attending the event each year in March. 2020 saw many events cancelled and Glenorchy City Council made the difficult decision to postpone the 10th anniversary of Moonah Taste of the World Festival. Instead, we invite you to experience Moonah Taste of the World Online!
Matt Ralph says:
“The flannelette curtain is both a tongue-in-cheek and derogatory term for the line separating the Hobart suburbs from the Northern Suburbs. The flannelette shirt has traditionally been a sign of the working class, lower class, or unemployed. Some middle and upper class Hobartians will joke of how they made sure they bought a house away from the flannelette curtain, or that they don’t travel beyond it. More broadly, lutruwita (Tasmania) is the ass end of Australia; Australia is the ass end of earth; earth a speck in an outer band of one mediocre spiral galaxy amongst billions. The joke is on all of us. Where do comparisons stop – we’re all insignificant.
