Carriageworks is home to Black Capital:
Redfern is a place of many stories, of inspirational leaders, fiery rhetoric and activism. It is an urban meeting place for Aboriginal Australians from all over the country.
Sometimes besieged, always resilient, at Redfern’s core is its thriving and dynamic community, home to many of Australia’s political and cultural trailblazers.
Known to locals as the ‘Black Capital of Australia’, Redfern is home to artists, leaders and citizens who vigorously offer Sydneysiders an alternative history and, potentially, our alternative future.
This January Sydney Festival, Carriageworks and the local community proudly welcome all Australians to Black Capital, a series of performances, seminars and exhibitions reflecting the diversity of contemporary Aboriginal practice, here in the heart of Redfern, in Australia’s black capital.’
