Tin Camp Studios, welcoming to all, is a culturally safe First Nations led space for conversation, healing, performances and workshops.

Led by Yuwaalaraay/Yorta Yorta man, Warren Mason, Tin Camp offers a role model for best practice community generated artistic programs and exchange. It is a welcoming place for conversations between cultures and geared towards increasing festivals’ capacity to work with First Nations communities in a meaningful and respectful way.

Warren Mason, the Camp’s founder, brings emotional intelligence, cultural sensitivity and creative capacity to creating an environment and a program which holds the untold, fosters connection and is a resounding and powerful example of how places and spaces forge cultural and creative identities.

Tin Camp Studios explores Warren's personal story of the Camp on the outskirts of his home town of Goodooga NSW. His family were the first Aboriginals allowed to live inside the township itself. Warren's story, and the story of the Tin Camp is embedded in the power, healing and intersection of identity and place. The Tin Camp studio is Warren Mason's own creation – a healing, music and storytelling space styled on a typical 1950s Aboriginal camp.
