professional and inclusive
As one of Western Australia’s leading arts and health organisations, DADAA provides exciting employment opportunities in a number of different areas. DADAA is committed to creating local employment opportunities in both regional WA and metropolitan Perth; providing staff with professional development and mentoring programs; encouraging artistic licence and creative control for artsworkers; increasing opportunities for people with disability in the workforce; and ensuring a professional and supportive work environment.
A number of our programs regularly recruit artsworkers for Freight Studio, Focus Studio and our Artlink Children and Young People’s program.
Many workshops at DADAA require support workers.
DADAA takes on a small number of interns each year – on a program-by-program basis. We see this as an important part of skill development for the next generation of professionals in the arts and disability sector. Depending on the relevance of an applicant’s skill set and the availability of a supervisor at DADAA, we may be able to offer students or recent graduates with experience as artsworkers, support workers, exhibition coordinators, digital and communications coordinators, event assistants or administrative assistants.
DADAA recognises that volunteering can play an important role in building career skills and engaging socially. We offer a limited number of volunteer places each year, based on organisational need and the availability of a DADAA staff member to effectively train and supervise a volunteer.
