  • Acknowledgement of country Sydney Festival would like to acknowledge the traditional owners of the land that we meet on, and pay respect to the Burramattagal people of the Darug clan. We would like to pay our respects to Elders both past and present, and all Aboriginal peoples from whichever Aboriginal nation they come from.

    Every January, Sydney Festival brings to our city a cultural celebration based on big ideas

    and bold artistic statements. The NSW Government is proud to continue to support the Festival, including delivering on our promise to bring a dedicated program to Western Sydney for the third year. This is a fantastic opportunity for Western Sydney families to attend and enjoy Festival events in this vibrant and dynamic region. This is our city in summer. Welcome to the Sydney Festival.

    the Hon. Barry ofarrellPremier of New South Wales, Minister for Western Sydney

    Parramatta has a long association with Sydney Festival. The program has grown

    significantly over this time and in 2014 it is better than ever, featuring an exciting array of international art, music and entertainment. I invite you to explore Parramatta during the Festival and discover the rich dining, shopping, culture, arts and entertainment options on offer.

    cr John chedid Lord Mayor of Parramatta

    Sydney Festival proudly embraces Parramatta as its principal Western Sydney hub. Our Parramatta Opening Party is the ideal family friendly start to an exciting program with great music, fun visual arts projects and the world premiere of Band of Magicians, a brand new show

    with four of the hottest showmen on the planet.

  • 6the duck is back.

    as soon as the five-storey high, yellow rubber duck floated into Cockle Bay last year, it became something of a celebrity. the work of acclaimed artist Florentijn hofman astonished onlookers and gave them a new perspective on darling harbour.

    Back to play in our corner of the bathtub, weve invited the duck to make a splash at duck-feeding hQ in Parramatta.

  • 8roman ondks celebrated work measuring the universe (2007), previously presented to great acclaim at moma, new york and tate St ives, united kingdom, begins with an empty gallery space. when you enter an attendant equipped with a black felt-tip pen marks your height, name and the date on the wall. as the blank walls transform into a universe of marks, a common family tradition turns into a portrait of Parramatta.

    an undeniable favourite from Project 27: 13 rooms, swap (2011) merges art with everyday life. roman ondk selects a performer to sit behind a table like a vendor in a marketplace. the performer invites you to swap an object for the one on their table, starting an amusing chain of barter and exchange. Finally, at the close of the exhibition, the last performer takes with them the final object of the day.
