Hatched National Graduate Show: Tactile Tour

about the event

Since 1992, the Hatched National Graduate Show has presented the work of over one thousand artists alongside that of their national peers in this unique showcase of emergent talent. Many of Australia’s most successful artistic careers have been launched this way. The show is held at PICA in the Perth Cultural Centre precinct.

As part of Hatched Open Day, DADAA will collaborate with PICA to offer a free guided tactile tour for people who are blind or vision impaired. The tactile tour allows people who are blind of vision impaired to explore contemporary art through informed discussion and by touching selected objects and materials from the Hatched show.

Companions and carers welcome.

Find out more about this year’s Hatched on the PICA website.

What GIFs?

DADAA presents What GIFs? workshop as part of Youth Week KickstART Festival

Celebrate your alter-ego and nurture your creativity in our claymation workshop, where participants will create their own accessible and animated Graphic Interchange Formats (GIFs).

In this pop-up animation studio, participants will create a short 20-frame animation video. Using claymation GIFs, they will explore their identity through a cartoon-like alter ego. Gathered together, these GIFs will produce a mosaic of pastiche portraits. What GIFs? explores the potential of clay and natural materials to spark imagination.

DADAA will be facilitating the workshop, which is free of charge and suitable for young people between the ages of 12 and 26.

Skyworks 2019: Audio Described Event

We’re sorry but this event is now fully booked.

DADAA will be at Skyworks 2019 for the third year in a row. We will be providing an Audio Described service for people who are blind or vision-impaired. Audio Description will be provided live, as the action happens.

An Auslan Interpreter service will also be offered.

We will be in a grassed area right on the foreshore about 800 metres from Elizabeth Quay Train Station and 350 metres from the Bell Tower. As this is a large public event, we will be located in a cordoned-off area, making this a comfortable space for people with disability, including for children with ASD and their families. The City of Perth also has a quiet space nearby for families with children with autism needing respite. DADAA will manage arts activities in these quiet zones.

To participate in the Audio Description service, you will need to provide your own earphones to connect to DADAA’s audio description unit.

Once booked, you will not need to arrive early to secure your spot, as it will be held for you.

Enjoy the entertainment and food at Langley Park, only 200 metres from the Audio Described viewing area, before joining us for the show.

Bring a rug or a chair, a picnic or food from one of the many food stalls.
