Rosemary joined Salamanca Arts Centre in December 1999 and over those years has been able to attract high quality national and international artists, exhibitions and performances to Hobart’s Salamanca Arts Centre.
Salamanca Arts Centre (SAC) is Tasmania’s multi-arts creative hub and an integral part of the State’s arts and creative industries infrastructure. SAC is an engine room for art-making and presentation; a centre for artists and designers in-studios; home to many of Tasmania’s leading arts organisations across live performance (theatre, music, dance), film and writing; cultural and commercial galleries and studios for visual arts, crafts and design.
Rosemary leaves SAC having secured arts funding over the next four years through the Australia Council and with just recently having successfully delivered Salamanca Moves, SAC’s inaugural dance festival.
“SAC’s Board takes this opportunity to thank Rosemary for her years of leadership, passion and dedication to the organisation,” says Chair Rebecca Roth.
“We also warmly welcome our Acting CEO Joe Bugden. He joined SAC in 2014 as the company’s Business Manager.”
Joe comes to this new role with more than 20 years’ experience in senior arts management and administration. Since arriving in Tasmania in 1999 Joe has worked as Executive Director of the Tasmanian Writers’ Centre, as General Manager and Artistic Director of the Tasmanian Readers’ & Writers’ Festival, and more recently taught Business Skills to art and design students at the University of Tasmania’s Centre for the Arts Hunter Street campus.
Salamanca Arts Centre looks forward to the future, enriching the lives of Tasmanians through the arts.
