Welcome to Wollongong’s Home of the Performing Arts

Merrigong’s First Nations Coordinator

Hi all my name is Kristy Thomas (also known in the community as Lil), I’m a very proud Yuin/Gunai Kurnai woman with strong cultural & family ties to the Dharawal Nation.

I have been appointed as Merrigong’s new First Nations Communications and Engagement Coordinator. Some of you may know me from my work with the Coomaditchie, Barnardos and my volunteer roles within the community. I’m really happy to be bringing my skills and expertise to Merrigong, and to help make sure that Merrigong has our First Nations community at the heart of all we do. While it’s early days yet, I’m really excited to help support the establishment of Merrigong’s First Nations performing arts program by consulting and connecting with our local community.

If you haven’t already, I’d also like to invite community members to get involved by becoming a part of Merrigong’s First Nations Reference Group. Local First Nations elders, artists, and community representatives with a range of skills, experience and ages are invited. For more information and how to apply, click here

There are lots of ways to be involved with what we do, so if you would like to get in touch, please feel free to drop me a line at

Coming Up…
