Apply Now for NIMBLE :
A program of support for local artists in response to the Covid-19 global pandemic.

Salamanca Arts Centre announces NIMBLE,
a program of support for local artists
in response to the Covid-19 global pandemic.

We know that, as a result of the global pandemic and its social and economic consequences, artists have lost opportunities. As one way of continuing to support local artists, Salamanca Arts Centre is waiving our Venue Hire Charges for successful NIMBLE Applicants and invites Tasmanian artists to express interest in using our venues; including the Peacock Theatre, the Long Gallery and other exhibiting and performance spaces, in some way that allows your creativity to be realised in a professional space.

We have to accept that things are not as they were, so audiences – if you want them – cannot be as large as you might have hoped. But there are still things that you can do; you might use our space for creative development or rehearsal, to film a performance for live-streaming or delayed broadcast. You might have a live performance and invite family and friends only for an intimate experience, you might screen a film in the theatre, you might curate an exhibition of your artist friends’ works and have a small opening event, you might get some friends together to do readings of a script that you’ve been working on, maybe this is an opportunity to get the band back together. Your event might be private or intimate, or you can sell tickets if you wish – it’s up to you.

There are some conditions attached; you will need to work in with the existing availability of the venues. We can assist in some marketing and promotion, but other assistance, such as technical assistance, or gallery sitting or front of house assistance may be very basic or, depending upon your circumstances, it might be that we are unable to extend our support that far. But we are really keen to hear what ideas are out there and how, together, we can help bring your creative ideas to reality in 2020.

The venues that are available as part of NIMBLE include: the Long Gallery, Peacock Theatre, Kelly’s Garden, and the Founders Room.


NIMBLE CURRENTLY CLOSED

All of the available dates have now been filled via the NIMBLE Program and we thank all of the applicants. We have some very exciting project coming soon as a result of the NIMBLE Program and can’t wait to share them with you.

NIMBLE will re-open if dates become available as a result of a cancellation or postponement.
So that we can notify you as soon as NIMBLE re-opens, please register your details in the Alert Me Online Form HERE.
