A VIBRANT ARTS AND HEALTH HUB
DADAA Fremantle is located in the Fremantle Old Boy’s School. An exciting new partnership with the City of Fremantle has allowed 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. The expanded hub provies a stronger sense of place, a more vibrant public arts program, and a more accessible 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. The studio re-opens and all workshops commence at the Old Boys’ School for Term 3 in 2017.
FREIGHT GALLERY: PRESENTED BY ACT-BELONG-COMMIT
Freight Gallery is temporarily closed as we work on establishing a new gallery at our new home, the Fremantle Old Boys’ School. The gallery will re-open early in 2018. DADAA’s flagship gallery hosts many 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.
