In 2015 Orana Arts commenced the new project Staging Stories. Funded though an initiative by Arts NSW, Staging Stories worked in partnership with Playwriting Australia and Mooghalin Performing Arts to develop and provide support for Aboriginal playwrights and performers across the whole of regional NSW.

In 2015 Orana Arts supported 6 workshops in Dubbo to bring together Aboriginal people with an interest in theatre, be it storytelling, performing, writing, acting, or fun. Aboriginal theatre is rare in regional NSW and people did not really understand what or why Staging Stories was being developed. The more we developed the project however, it became clear how important it is to tell Aboriginal stories from the Aboriginal perspective and that regional NSW is rich with stories lived by Aboriginal people.
