Create NSW has been working closely with Department of Planning Industry and Environment and six local councils to implement public art as a key component of the Parramatta Road Urban Amenity Improvement Program.

Creative Road developed an overarching Public Art Framework to provide a comprehensive guide for the implementation of public art works along the Parramatta Road corridor. Local and state government policies informed the development of the framework – identifying opportunities and approaches to public art while responding to community.

See below for current public art opportunities for artists.

Up to 13 site specific artworks will be installed across 5 precincts to reflect an understanding of the GreenWay and deepen people’s relationship to this special place.
