The energetic home for creative production in the centre of Western Sydney, Parramatta Artists’ Studios (PAS) has supported hundreds of artists since opening in 2006. PAS provides a supportive studio environment for artists to develop their practices, whilst also connecting them with a community of peers and arts professionals.
In 2019, PAS expanded to open an additional studio facility in Rydalmere containing six warehousestyle studios. This new space focuses on engaging artists beyond an emerging career stage and re-engages with former PAS studio artists to contribute to career sustainability. From our studios in Parramatta and Rydalmere, artists make, connect and find inspiration in this fast-growing location. Through PAS’ creative programs, our artists engage with Parramatta and the wider community, contributing significantly to its vibrant culture.
Parramatta Artists’ Studios is an initiative of the City of Parramatta.
