Parramatta By Foot is a creative initiative curated by Parramatta Artists’ Studios that has transformed the pathways around the local area.

Families can get out and explore four unique installations by Western Sydney-based artists in the Rosehill Ward, City of Parramatta. Everyone is encouraged to seek out the temporary footpath artworks - and have fun!

I’ll meet you here again is a labyrinth by artist Nadia Odlum is inspired by the historic labyrinth at Chartres Cathedral in France and reflects on the shifts in how people move through public spaces during COVID-19. Wentworth Point Community Centre and Library forecourt.

Immersion: Granville Patch by Kalanjay Dhir is a footpath artwork that includes top-down images of a person swimming through the footpath. Token-like images with text turn this artwork into a game that directs pedestrian movement as they respond to a series of questions relating to spirituality and the environment. Bridge Street, near Granville Train Station

Gondwana forest footfall by Penelope Cain explores the relationship between Australia and India by presenting a series of fossil-based images from the Permian period. Harris Park Shops, Wigram Street.
