Product Description

Parragirls profiles how contemporary art helped transform the lives and memories of former residents of Parramatta Girls Home in Western Sydney, and a long-neglected site located on the lands of the Burramattagai people of the Darug nation. Focusing on the art and activism of Parragirls themselves, this ground-breaking book reveals how art can change places and perceptions, using images and creative writing to reimagine the difficult spaces and memories of a former child welfare institution.
