Are you an experienced café operator who’s passionate about community and food? DADAA is looking for Expressions of Interest for a unique opportunity to operate an inclusive cafe in a significant cultural hub.

An opportunity exists for an experienced café operator to take on the lease of the fully equipped café situated within the heritage listed Old Fremantle Boys’ School.

Located in the heart of Fremantle’s rapidly developing East End, the Old Fremantle Boys’ School underwent significant refurbishment in 2019. The site is now a significant cultural facility designed around the arts access needs of Western Australian artists with disability: home to DADAA’s head office, studios, cinema and gallery, along with CircusWA and the Fremantle Foundation.

The café forms a vital part of a strategy to welcome the community into the Boys’ School, and an essential part of this vision is the establishment of an inclusive workforce, providing training and employment of people with disability.

With space for up to 20 people inside and an attractive, spacious courtyard with seating for 28 people, there is also the opportunity for the café to develop as a vibrant function and event space and enhance DADAA’s program of exhibition openings, cinema screenings and cultural partnerships.
