Jane Haley
Bachelor of Education 1989

Jane Haley has worked in the arts all her life and all over Australia. CEO of state-wide arts festival Ten Days on the Island, her career encompasses a broad range of arts organisations.

Since studying education at the University of Tasmania, Jane’s keen interest in strengthening the creative and cultural sectors in Australia has led her to leadership positions with professional arts industry and advocacy bodies.

Jane was Senior Policy Adviser to Victoria’s Minister for the Arts, was CEO of the Australia Business Arts Foundation and the inaugural AbaF Director for Artsupport Australia. 


Tamara Jago SC
Bachelor of Arts and Bachelor of Laws 1993

Magistrate Tamara Jago was born, raised and educated in the North-West of Tasmania, and after graduating from the University she specialised in criminal law in private practice. She commenced a position at the Legal Aid Commission in 2000.

At the time, colleagues warned her the move to legal aid would be a career showstopper. Instead, in 2010, she became the first woman in Tasmania to be made Senior Counsel – the first also to receive that title working from the Legal Aid system. It was something the Attorney General of the time called an “historic appointment”.

In 2016, she was appointed to the bench where she continues to serve as one of the North-West region’s senior judicial officers. Earlier this year Magistrate Jago’s achievements were recognised with the University of Tasmania Alumni Award for Excellence.
