Fremantle – Opportunities for Artists
Through the generous support of the Australian Federal Government, Salamanca Arts Centre has been awarded a Commonwealth Regional Grant of $200,000 towards the redevelopment of the Salamanca Arts Centre Courtyard.
Salamanca Arts Centre has engaged PlayStreet to develop plans for the Courtyard landscaping project, and as part of the overall redevelopment. This will also include a commissioned artwork as well as new furniture, both to be designed by a Tasmanian-based artist and designer/maker.
The Courtyard redevelopment will also include additional sound and lighting equipment and a redesigned performance stage. We expect that the Courtyard redevelopment project will be completed by November 2020 and ready to be opened to the public at that time.
