A VIBRANT ARTS AND HEALTH HUB
From mid-2017, DADAA Fremantle will relocate to the Fremantle Old Boy’s School. This exciting new partnership with the City of Fremantle allow us to better align with the City of Fremantle’s current Economic Development Strategy by strengthening DADAA’s contribution to ‘knowledge based’ and ‘population-based’ industries that create a sense of place, a public arts program, and an arts and cultural plan for the whole community.
Small and intimate, this powerhouse of a studio holds several classes a day across a range of artforms. The studio is designed for workshops of up to 12 artists and their companions. Smaller groups and one-on-one mentorships also take place in the studio. The studio is well-equipped with large working spaces in natural light. We also have our own in-house press for print-making and a computer for digital work. Still operating from our location at 21 Beach Street, Fremantle, the studio will expand significantly when we relocate to the Old Boys’ School later this year.
FREIGHT GALLERY: PRESENTED BY ACT-BELONG-COMMIT
DADAA’s flagship gallery hosts up to 15 exhibitions each year, showcasing artists from DADAA with those from the wider arts community. Located in the heart of Fremantle, Freight Gallery is the only gallery space in Perth dedicated to providing the infrastructure for artists with disability or mental illness wishing to gain access to WA audiences and the arts economy. Freight Gallery is open during office hours from Monday to Friday.
Please note that for the first six months of 2017, exhibitions will be limited as we wrap up activities at our Beach Street location in preparation for moving to the Old Boy’s School mid-year.
