The Salamanca Arts Centre is a vibrant arts community located at Hobart’s Salamanca Place. Salamanca Place is close to Hobart’s waterfront, a short walk from the city’s central business district.
The 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. Choose your own piece of Tasmanian art, sample fair trade coffee and baked treats at Tricycle Café or join the locals for live music and mulled wine in The Courtyard each Friday evening.
Upstairs at the Long Gallery you can see contemporary Tasmanian, national and international visual arts, design and photographic exhibitions. The Sidespace Gallery is a subsidised exhibition space for professional artists to show their work, and at Kelly’s Garden, an outdoor installation space, you can sit and contemplate intriguing art works.
The Peacock Theatre, with its natural rock face backdrop, offers contemporary theatre, film, music and performance year round, and the Venue is a loft space offering music, comedy festivals and swing dance classes.
