The Founders Room

Nestled beneath the vaulted gables of an 1840’s warehouse is SAC’s latest offering to the people of Tasmania: The Founders Room. Newly renovated with polished oaken floorboards, limewashed sandstone walls and heritage windows that look out over the SAC Courtyard on one side and Wooby’s Lane and Salamanca Square on the other.

Dedicated to the Founders of Salamanca Arts Centre, this is the perfect location for performances, wedding receptions, cocktail parties, seminars, training sessions, launches and promotional events.
