Parramatta Road Urban Amenity Improvement (PRUAIP) First Nations Banner Program

We're inviting local schools to participate our First Nations art workshops in late March 2022.

PRUAIP First Nations Banner Program

The Parramatta Road Urban Amenity Improvement Program (PRUAIP) is an initiative by the NSW Government to improve open space and active transport links along the Parramatta Road corridor.

Cumberland City Council's First Nations Banner Program will use final artworks from our program workshops to inspire the creation of street flag banners that will be showcased throughout our Auburn North precinct on Parramatta Road, as part of the PRUAIP public art program.

Get involved

We're holding a series of creative workshops over two weeks in local Cumberland City schools for young First Nations students and/or young people.

  • The workshops run Term 1 in the last two weeks of March 2022
  • First Nations artists Dennis Golding and Darug Elder Uncle Chris Tobin will lead the workshops
  • The workshops will explore themes of First Nations pride, cultural identity, connection, respect and care for Country
  • Each workshop participant will have the opportunity to create an individual artwork exploring what these themes mean to them
  • All art materials for the workshops will be provided
  • Schools are invited to register on behalf of their students. Find registration details below.
