Salamanca Arts Centre is a vibrant arts community located at Hobart's Salamanca Place, close to Hobart's waterfront and a short walk from the city's central business district.
Salamanca Arts Centre includes artist studios, galleries, venues, retail outlets, arts organisations and public spaces, housed in the historic sandstone warehouses of Salamanca Place. You can wander through alcoves lined with galleries and shops and join the locals for live music in The Courtyard each Friday evening. The Founders Room is a dedicated live music venue with music every week.
Upstairs at the Long Gallery, you can see contemporary Tasmanian, national & international visual arts and design exhibitions. The Sidespace Gallery is a subsidised exhibition space for professional artists to show their work. Kelly's Garden hosts our outdoor exhibitions and offers a space for reflection and The Peacock Theatre offers contemporary theatre, film, music and performance year-round. Along Salamanca Place sits our newest multi-modal contemporary space, SOCIAL which hosts exhibitions, workshops and artist talks and presentations.
