Carriageworks is located on Gadigal Land in Redfern, Sydney. Our First Nations Arts Strategy lies at the heart of the Carriageworks Artistic Program. We support contemporary First Nations arts practice through multi-year partnerships with the National Centre for Indigenous Excellence and our resident companies Marrugeku and Moogahlin Performing Arts. We also commission new First Nations work through ongoing projects such as The National: New Australian Art, Klub Koori, South East Aboriginal Arts Market and the Yellamundie Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Playwriting Festival.
