    Moogahlin Performing Arts  

Moogahlin Performing Arts was formed in Redfern in November 2007 by a group of Indigenous theatre artists, educators and community workers in honour of the late Kevin Smith's request and in memory of the founding members of the Black Theatre.

Moogahlin is based at the Redfern Community Centre in the Block in the heart of the local Redfern Indigenous comnmunity. It aims to create and tell community-based stories, develop a comprehensive youth theatre program and mount large scale main stage productions. Moogahlin supports both emerging and established Indigenous theatre artists, nurturing work created, developed and performed by Indigenous people for Indigenous people.

Moogahlin is a Bundjalung word meaning to play or fool around.
