Carriageworks is located on Gadigal Land in Redfern, Sydney and our First Nations program lies at the heart of our Artistic Program.

In 2022, Carriageworks will present a suite of events to mark the 50th anniversary of the founding of the National Black Theatre and the establishment of the Tent Embassy, both pivotal moments in First Nations contemporary arts and politics in Australia. More to be announced in June.

The program also includes new commissioned work by Karla Dickens, Thea Anamara Perkins and the return of the popular SOUTHEAST Aboriginal Arts Market in November.
