10 years ago, ICE opened a lab of recycled computers in an empty shopfront in Parramatta to test Western Sydney’s first community digital arts access space Switch was born on Darcy St, and then took up residence for six years in Granville. It’s been a decade-long journey to turn the dream of an amazing, high-tech space for community digital production and exchange into a reality.
In November 2010 ICE officially launched our shiny, refurbished Switch Digital Arts Centre in the heart of Parramatta, linking us into the city’s growing arts and cultural precinct. Switch building refurbishment and technology upgrade was made with support from the Australian Government (Department of Education, Employment and Workplace Relations) and the NSW Goverment (Community Building Partnerships, Arts NSW and the Department of Human Services- Community Services). We couldn’t have achieved this without ten years of support from our Switch partnership with Parramatta City Council, the generous lease from the Catholic Diocese, or the continuing support of our core funding bodies (Arts NSW, Australia Council for the Arts, Screen NSW and NSW Department of Community Services – Human Services).
ICE has settled in, and we’ve had many visitors through our doors. We’re ready now to see the venue really Switch it on!
