Pop Up Parramatta: setting up at Connection Arcade

Pop Up Parramatta logo

In June 2011 Pop Up Parramatta opened a site with a number of existing empty shopfronts at Connection Arcade, 162-172 Church Street, Parramatta. Lisa Andersen and Katrina Fox from the Empty Spaces Project interviewed artists from Moth Gallery and Parramatta Clay and Arts and Merryn Spencer, Creative Broker with Parramatta City Council, to gain some insight into the process of 'setting up'.

Pop Up Parramatta is a project of Parramatta City Council with co-funding from Arts NSW and input from other partners. It aims to transform Parramatta into a place where creative practitioners create, develop and sell their work through the temporary use of vacant properties.
