the disseminate project

Through its Disseminate project, DADAA offers evaluation and research consultancy services in arts and disability, and arts and mental health in community and educational settings. Our frameworks are able to capture the complexities of community-based arts programs, and incorporate multi-stakeholder perspectives. Where appropriate, our evaluators collaborate with academic partners. Disseminate was established more than 10 years ago through a partnership that included Rio Tinto Community Investment WA, Australia Council for the Arts, Healthway and The University of Western Australia – with DADAA as the lead community organisation. Since then, we have completed a range of evaluation projects in partnership with external organisations – including Arts Access Australia, Sensorium Theatre, YMCA, Rio Tinto and others.

Over the years, DADAA has developed a suite of approaches and tools to help us better understand the way in which participatory arts benefits individual and community wellbeing.
