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.
