Parramatta Female Factory Precinct Memory Project is a social history and contemporary art project funded by Arts NSW and centered on the significant site of the former Female Factory and Parramatta Girls Home in Western Sydney.

The PFFP Memory Project explores the experience, history and representation of institutionalised women and children in Australia and foster creative opportunities for those with a direct experience of institutional confinement to represent and articulate their own history. It brings together artists, advisors, former occupants, traditional owners, local communities and other New South Wales residents in an environment of exchange, investigation and interpretation of the site and its history with the aim of activating it in the public sphere as a Site of Conscience.
