Parramatta. Artists to use disused space

Disused commercial premises in the Parramatta CBD will get a new lease of life as creative enterprise hubs, following the announcement of the $100,000 project, jointly funded by Parramatta City Council and the NSW Government. Lord Mayor, Paul Garrard, said the funding would promote Parramatta as a leader in the creative industries by transforming disused commercial premises into innovative spaces for artists and other creative practitioners to create, exhibit and sell their work. “Council is dedicated to providing good creative opportunities in Parramatta and this project will ensure that we not only retain our artistic talent but can also attract more visitors to our area and generate increased economic opportunities,” he said.
