Parramatta Girls Home – audio tour and site visit

October 21 @ 12:00 pm - 5:00 pm

Free

As part of the Big Anxiety Parramatta Hub, the Parramatta Girls’ Home (1 Fleet st, Parramatta) will be open to visitors on 21 October. An audio tour created by the Parragirls (former residents) provides unique insight into the lives of women who were committed to the home in the 1970s when courts deemed them “exposed to moral danger”. Download the tour in advance from: https://soundcloud.com/user-461765716/sets/parragirls?utm_source=soundcloud&utm_campaign=share&utm_medium=twitter.

A bus will run from Riverside Theatres, Parramatta (a short walk from Parramatta station) to the Girls Home every half an hour from 12-5pm. At Riverside Theatre Courtyard is an interactive exhibition of Virtual Reality projects, relating to mental health, as well as the Big Anxiety’s Mobile Mood Lab. Pick up a map or take a walking tour of festival art works in the surrounding area.
