Parragirls profiles the transformative artwork Parragirls
realised in collaboration with contemporary artists and communities since the
Parragirls Memory Project began in 2012. This vividly illustrated book reveals
how art can change places and perceptions, in this case the long-neglected site
of Parramatta Girls Home in Western Sydney, located on the lands of the
Burramattagal people of the Darug nation.


Centred on the art and activism of its
former residents, this is the first publication of its kind to use images and
creative writing to open up the difficult spaces of an Australian former child
welfare institution, one where significant abuse took place right up until its
closure in 1974, as evidenced in the royal commission into child sexual abuse.
