Watch as Parramatta Female Factory campaign goes national and spread the word

1-IMG_3232NSW Minister for Education, Adrian Piccoli, announced today that the Old King’s School at Parramatta will be converted to a state primary school. It will not become the long advocated arts and cultural precinct, but at best share facilities for after hours use by artists and the community. Meanwhile, the future of the Parramatta Female Factory Precinct continues under threat from the state government’s urban renewal plans. Local residents and their supporters, who are campaigning against the excessive proposals through the recently formed North Parramatta Residents Action Group, are taking their fight up to ABC National Television. Above, is an example of demolition by neglect as the portico of one of the Frances Greenway designed Female Factory buildings slowly collapses.

Spread the word and watch the program:
