SAC ARTS BALL 2017 :
Time Travel

2017 marks the 40th Anniversary of
Salamanca Arts Centre (SAC) – our Ruby Jubilee!
And we can’t think of a better way to celebrate than with the revival of the Arts Ball.

There has not been an Arts Ball at SAC in over 15 years, which is far too long between drinks.

The SAC Arts Ball on Saturday 21 October 2017 is an opportunity to get together and celebrate, surrounded by friends, colleagues and family.
Combine delicious drinks and some of the best live music Hobart has to offer, and we have no doubt that this will be a night to remember.

This is a PUBLIC EVENT, open to everyone and anyone who loves costume, music and a good time!


On offer throughout the evening is an array of outstanding musical
performances by:
– The Modern Operative
– Art School Bullies
– DJ Kashishi
– Ralph Forehead
– Randal Muir


THEME : Time Travel

As SAC is celebrating 40 years, we have been reflecting over the past four decades, but also looking towards the future!
Therefore the theme of the SAC Arts Ball 2017 is TIME TRAVEL

The SAC Arts Ball is a costumed event. 
Costume is desired, but not required.
Cocktail dress is acceptable alternative (but you would not be in the running to win the amazing prizes!)

Salamanca Arts Centre CEO Rosemary Miller announces her resignation

HOBART, 27 October 2016After seventeen years in the role of CEO / Artistic Director, Rosemary Miller has announced that she will be resigning on 2 December 2016.

Read Arts Minister Vanessa Goodwin’s statement here.

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.

Introducing SALAMANCA MOVES

Salamanca Arts Centre proudly presents a new participatory dance festival for Hobart in September 2016. Salamanca MOVES will inspire and empower a community of dance agents for change.

Movers will challenge and re-imagine the dancing body, and extraordinary art experiences will innovate local and national dance conversations.

Events during the festival will be focused around Hobart’s vibrant Salamanca precinct.

“Tasmania’s dance community is rich and incredibly diverse,” says festival curator Kelly Drummond Cawthon, a Hobart girl who left town in the eighties aged 16 seeking qualifications and a career in dance. She returned from the US in 2011 as a dancer, choreographer and inspiring activist dance educator who now runs Salamanca Arts Centre’s SPACE and Live Arts program.

“Whether you’re talking about dance as a hobby, as a vocation or anything in between, it’s a universal form of expression that brings people together in so many powerful and interesting ways.”

The festival will feature dancers and dance-makers who have trained for decades and performed on world stages, dancers who identify with a disability, dancers on the streets, in hidden spaces and across the Salamanca precinct.

Diverse dance will be main-streamed with the deep belief that the more difference you share the more dance is enriched as an art-form.

Submissions are welcomed from dancers of all levels, including teachers, and anyone looking to engage in performances, workshops, panels and conversations about dance.

Movers of all ages are invited and welcomed to engage in creative opportunities, movement experiences and performances. New Movers without dance experience are welcome.
