Transition Out of Lockdown: Perth, Peel and South West

Following the WA Government’s announcement of a relaxation of lockdown restrictions from 6pm today, DADAA’s offices will re-open on Monday, February 8. We look forward to safely welcoming everyone back to DADAA as soon as possible, however, as we join with the rest of the community in transitioning out of lockdown, access to DADAA offices will be limited to participants with disability and their advocates, support workers, and staff.

Our Term 1 studio and workshop program will be commencing in the coming week and our hubs are currently being prepared to once again accommodate physical distancing. PPE (including masks) will also be provided to all staff and participants.

The Arts Services team is finalising changes to our programs, including our two upcoming Perth Festival events: Fair Isle and The Other Film Festival WA, and details of these changes will be announced shortly. 

The safety and wellbeing of our staff, participants, artists and the broader community is our priority, and while we are pleased to be working towards re-opening, our thoughts are also with those who are being impacted by the ongoing and devastating bushfire emergency in the Perth Hills.

Lockdown: Perth, Peel and South West

In response to the Western Australian Government’s COVID-19 announcement yesterday, DADAA’s Fremantle and Midland offices will be closed until Monday, February 8 and staff are working remotely.

Workshop and studio programs in Fremantle and Midland have been cancelled this week. As Lancelin and Geraldton sit outside the lockdown area, their programs will continue to run.

The opening event for DADAA Gallery’s new exhibition Fair Isle on Friday, February 5 has been postponed until further notice, as have the artist talks which were scheduled for Saturday, February 6. We will advise you of the new dates as soon as possible.

Please note this is a potentially volatile situation and lockdown dates may change. We will provide updates regarding any further impacts to DADAA’s services and programs as they come to hand.

We look forward to opening our offices and recommencing our programs once it is safe to do so.

DADAA participants, family members and carers have all been contacted regarding the temporary changes to our services. If you need further assistance or support, please contact the DADAA Client Services Team.
