Once a carter’s backyard, an escaped convict’s hideaway and a drying room for apple juice filters, Kelly’s Garden is a space that offers a unique urban heritage environment for contemporary artists.
Kelly’s Garden is a courtyard enclosed by the three storey brick and stone walls of the old warehouses it once serviced. It is accessed via Kelly’s Lane off Salamanca Place, and has a large sliding gate with specially designed peepholes.
Kelly’s Garden has been restored to cater for a continuing program of large scale sculpture and installation works, exhibitions, and performances.
Due to the location of Kelly's Garden and the significant sound bleed between the adjacent venues, the availability of Kelly's Garden is pending the bookings and scheduled activity in the adjacent venues (Peacock Theatre, Courtyard etc). An event cannot occur in Kellys Garden if there is already an event scheduled in an adjacent venue which may be impacted.
For more information on exhibiting in Kelly's Garden, including Venue Hire Rates and the Conditions of Hire (PDF), please visit the SAC website prior to submitting your application.
