Taking up themes of resilience, adaptation and displacement, No Fixed Address is a collaborative project between DADAA, Perth contemporary artists, filmmakers and the St Pat’s community, based in Fremantle’s East End.
The East End of Fremantle is an area undergoing rapid gentrification. At the centre of this changing landscape sits St Patrick’s Community Support Centre (St Pat’s), an NGO, which for the past 40 years has supported those who are at risk of or experiencing homelessness.
Developed over the past year, No Fixed Address explores survival tactics, social rituals and ways of moving within and occupying public space as strategies to subvert environmental and economic precarity.
Unfolding as a series of workshops, public events, installations, film works and an exhibition at DADAA Fremantle, No Fixed Address responds to the social and built environments of this radically changing part of Fremantle.
Carpe Noctem Walking Tour | Saturday 30 November & Monday 9 December, 8 – 10pm
The streets after dark are places of adventure and wonder. Let’s make them ours! Carpe Noctem is a night walking group created by artist Janet Carter. Presented for No Fixed Address, these walking tours through Fremantle’s East End will address our fears of walking at night and question who has the right to occupy our urban spaces after dark.
Panel Talk | Thursday 23 January 2020, 6pm
As the built landscape of Fremantle’s East End begins to change, this public panel will bring together local business, not-for-profit organisations, urban planning experts, the St Pat’s community and artists to discuss the impact of social housing and diversity in our urban centres.
Object for Anti-Gentrification | Monday 17 February – Wednesday 26 February 2020
Based on duck hunting blinds and bunkers, tactics artist Tanya Lee learned from the St Pat’s community, and in opposition to many of the CPTED (Crime Prevention Through Environmental Design) principles employed by city councils, this temporary public artwork playfully antagonises the dynamics of gentrification and the changing streetscape of Fremantle’s East End.
