Every two years MAANZ hosts a Mosaic Symposium where artists and enthusiasts get together to learn and be inspired by national and international mosaicists. Our past Symposiums were held in Melbourne (2003), Sydney (2005), Tasmania (2007), Brisbane (2009), Barossa Valley, SA (2011) , Melbourne (2013), Sydney (2015) and Hobart (2017). With each Symposium the events get bigger and better.
