ABOUT THIS WORKSHOP
DADAA’s Mixed Reality project addressed the digital exclusion of young West Australian artists with disability by supporting them to develop and lead their own digital arts practice and claim their place in state, national and international arts communities.
Mixed Reality follows this model of professional development, pairing experienced film-makers and performers with young adults to guide and mentor them as they begin and develop their digital arts practice. The mentorship builds skills in developing and telling their stories through the process, and teaches technical and artistic skills – everything from conceptualising a project to performing a finished work.
An important aim of the project is to develop future leaders in digital practice in Western Australia. The program is firmly based in disability-led arts practice.
Mixed Reality artists meet with their mentors at a variety of locations, depending on the nature and stage of the work. Planning venues can include DADAA’s Fremantle hub in the Old Boys School, while performance venues can include the State Theatre Centre of WA or other venues throughout Perth.
