JOIN A COMMUNITY OF ARTISTS
DADAA has three main studios in Fremantle, Midland and Lancelin, as well as operating smaller studios in Ellenbrook, Hamersley and Geraldton. The larger and more central venues – that include co-location with other community organisations – bring programs and performance opportunities for artists and position DADAA as a significant arts and health hub within each community. We invite you to step inside, make new friends, develop your own creativity and voice, and be part of a diverse and active community of artists.
FOLLOW PATHWAYS TO PROFESSIONAL PRACTICE
DADAA is a great ‘connector’ between the disability/mental health and arts sectors, offering individual artists progression pathways that lead to a greater sense of everyday wellbeing and professional careers. Whether you enjoy weekly group workshops for recreational activity, or aspire to becoming a professional artist, DADAA has a pathway for you.
FIND NEW AUDIENCES FOR YOUR CREATIVE WORK
DADAA artists share their work with new audiences through many channels: our various gallery spaces, external performance spaces, online broadcasts and partnership events with state, national and international arts organisations. We offer both traditional exhibition opportunities or online forums for you to share your work and engage with audiences.
PARTNER WITH US TO DELIVER INNOVATIVE SERVICES
Through our bold partnership strategy, DADAA has developed a national reputation as a leading innovator, informing the development of contemporary Arts and Disability and Community Arts Cultural Development (CACD) practice around Australia. Partnerships allow for co-production with artists with disability and with communities in inclusive models of arts practice. Partnerships also see DADAA develop effective programs with corporate and government partners to achieve their business and service objectives.
WE’RE IN IT FOR THE LONG HAUL
Over more than 25 years, DADAA has grown from being small health arts organisation to being a multi-site professional arts organisation with hundreds of artists participating in our diverse array of programs.
DADAA has a solid reputation. We are recognised by the Federal and State Governments as an important centre of arts development for people with disability, and have received numerous national and state awards for our programs over the years.
