DESCRIPTION

Join us this Youth Week to celebrate young people leading change. Free food, performers & more! Youth Action and City of Parramatta Council together unveil a 24-metre long augmented reality mural painted by street artist Inovis! The mural titled ‘Beyond Stereotypes’, a collaboration between City of Parramatta Council and Youth Action, features the faces of seven young women from Western Sydney, and comes alive with text and video after users download a smartphone app. People can bring the mural alive by downloading the Beyond Stereotypes app on the i Store and pointing the phone at the women’s faces. Audio and text about people, place, culture and community in Western Sydney then appear on the phone’s screen. The app also links to Youth Action’s Beyond Stereotypes report, City of Parramatta’s Discover Parramatta website, and local youth services. Special guest City of Parramatta Lord Mayor.
