An initiative of Parramatta Female Factory Precinct Association the Memory Project brings together artists, historians, academics and former occupants to document, record and interpret the history, heritage and legacy of this institutional precinct.
Our aim is to transform this once inaccessible institutional precinct into a place of shared cultural heritage that acknowledges the significance it holds for First Nations people, women, Forgotten Australians, Stolen Generations and in the provision of mental health services.
Connecting past to present and memory to action through social history and contemporary art.
Our aim is to activate this historic institutional precinct into a place of public memory as a creative, cultural hub in the heart of Western Sydney. We do this through a diverse program of contemporary art and social history projects that foster agency for former occupants to document and interpret the institutional experience and its legacy.
