Lily Shearer is a proud citizen of the Murrwarri Republic & Ngemba Nation (north-west NSW/south-east QLD) woman with 30+ years experience in First Peoples Cultural Development, Arts Management and in Theatre and performance making.

In co-founding Moogahlin Performing Arts, a First Peoples company in Redfern, Sydney NSW, Lily’s vision was to put in to practice the principle of ownership for First Peoples Australian communities by facilitating the handover of the final Gathering Ground project from Pact Youth Theatre to Moogahlin Performing Arts in 2010. A process outlined in Protocols of Engagement: 'Community Cultural Development' Encounters an Urban Aboriginal Experience (2009). This process provided leadership opportunities for local First Peoples Australian theatre practitioners and provided new opportunities for emerging local First Peoples Australian theatre makers and practitioners.

Currently Lily is a freelance-performing artist, cultural collaborator/ consultant/ educator, and member of Moogahlin Artistic Directorate. Recent highlights include:
