Why we charge fees

For many years, DADAA received annual funding from disability and mental health State Government departments to run art workshops. This has changed. The introduction of the National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS) means funding will now be given directly from the Government to individuals like you.

To receive payment for your placement in a workshop or program, DADAA  fees for each individual who attends workshops. This will pay for the studio time, the artists who run the workshops, materials, and any administration required.

Our fees

You can find our full list of NDIS Client fees here: NDIS Pricing Guide

Many of DADAA’s participants and artists already receive NDIS funding and have chosen to use these support funds to continue at DADAA.

If you are new to DADAA and have NDIS funding, then you can request that DADAA is written into your support plan and use that allocated funding to pay for your fees at DADAA.

To find out more about NDIS funding and how you can include the arts in your plan view the NDIS participant guide.

Don’t have disability support?

If you don’t currently receive NDIS funding, or you are ineligible to do so, then fees will be set according to our Self-funded Fees and and Charges Schedule. Self Funded Fees and Charges effective 1 July 2021

DADAA recognises that some people may have difficulty paying fees and provide a limited number of one-off term-based fee waivers to assist people in attending workshops. An application process needs to be followed. Please speak to our Client Services Team for more information.
