Under the management of Metanoia Theatre the Mechanics Institute provides opportunities for artists in the local area to present their work, run and attend workshops and is a contemporary arts venue where the Moreland public and beyond can view high quality performances of a diverse and innovative nature.

See our program of events and book tickets HERE.

The Mechanics Institute is curated by an Artistic Directorate with Metanoia’s Artistic Team to ensure that audiences have a programme of multiplicity in artform, produced by a range of emerging and established artists. Works are programmed that are relevant, daring and engaging.
