Pari pays respect to the Burramattagal people of the Dharug nation as the custodians of the land on which we are based. We acknowledge that sovereignty has not been ceded and pay respect to Elders and Knowledge Holders past and present.
Pari is an artist-run initiative in Parramatta. We are for art that tells stories that need to be told, sheds new light on old thinking, or tackles new ideas altogether.

Pari is an artist-run space where people and communities come together to talk, think, learn and do. Art and artists are at the core of Pari’s activities: we believe that artists play a vital role in processing and reflecting the important issues of our time. Reflecting the social, the political and the deeply personal, our program draws out ideas that are particular to our location in Western Sydney on unceded Dharug land, and that resonate well beyond the local.
We will facilitate the space, but what Pari is will be defined by the people who show here, the people who come and look and listen, the conversations that happen, the things that get said and thought and reconsidered.
Pari pays artist fees for every exhibition and public program, with support from the NSW Government through Create NSW.
