Parramatta Rd Urban Amenity Improvement Project

PUBLIC ART FRAMEWORK

The Parramatta Road Urban Amenity Improvement Program (PRUAIP) is a $198 million initiative to stimulate the transformation of the Corridor. The purpose of the public art framework is to encourage investment in placemaking, through high quality integrated public art along the Parramatta Rd Corridor.

A key objective is the creation of liveable spaces where public art plays an important role.  The framework identified types of public art specifically suited to the Corridor and focuses on building a case for investment as well as on providing practical information on best practice public art commissioning.

“Taking the lead from our Darug community we understand culture has an all-encompassing role. Aboriginal people and Indigenous peoples around the world see culture as part of a holistic unified system that has song, dance, ceremony, ritual as the foundations of their knowledge systems including land and water management – they are inseparable.”
