Nestled beneath the vaulted gables of an 1840’s warehouse is the Founders Room. With polished oaken floorboards, limewashed sandstone walls and heritage windows that look out over the SAC Courtyard on one side and Woobys 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.
In addition to the Venue Hire Program, in January 2022 Salamanca Arts Centre launched the Founders Room Live Music Program to support the local music industry. Each Thursday, Friday and Saturday evening the Founders Room showcases performances by local, interstate and international musicians. The curated program is diverse, featuring a range of genres, from jazz to experimental music.
