The Muru Project

Playwriting Australia in partnership with Moogahlin Performing Arts, supported by City of Sydney and Arts NSW,  are proud to present in 2016 ‘The Muru Project’, an initiative aimed at new plays to be created, produced and performed by First Peoples for First Peoples of this Great South Land.

The Muru Project provides a pathway to the First Nations community of Sydney to engage in storytelling and playwriting. An introductory workshop was provided in May, which gathered a group of very curious and deadly serious writers.  We are now moving toward the second in our path, ‘The Muru Project: A writing Salon’.

The Muru Salon will:

–           provide time, space and creative expertise to writers as they turn their ideas into a playscript.

–          provide support and guidance from established playwrights.

–          provide a unique opportunity to professionally develop your artistic life

If you are:

– a writer who has been wrestling with an idea for a play and in need of guidance,

– establishing your passion for playwriting and are looking for more grounding in the craft,

– serious about rendering the full potential of your play,

then The Muru Salon is the room you need to be in.
