NO FIXED ADDRESS is a project developed by DADAA in partnership with St Patrick’s Community Support Centre and a group of Perth-based contemporary artists and filmmakers.

Centred in Fremantle’s East End, an area currently undergoing mass gentrification, ‘St Pat’s’ is an NGO which for the past 40 years has worked to support those who are homeless or at risk of becoming homeless.

NO FIXED ADDRESS creatively explores ideas of resilience, precarity and survival, and will seek to intervene in and respond to the social and built environments of Fremantle’s East End.

Across 2019 artists Janet Carter, Olga Cironis, Hannan Jones, Tanya Lee, Lincoln Mackinnon, Mike Moshos and Susan Roux will produce a series of workshops, artworks, films and installations in response to and in collaboration with the staff and community of St Pat’s. These outcomes will be presented as public events, installations and an exhibition at the DADAA Gallery in Fremantle, beginning in October 2019.

NO FIXED ADDRESS builds on DADAA and International Art Space’s Field of the Unwanted project, contributing to a growing body of projects, digital works and installations that result in new narratives from and with the diverse communities that inhabit this radically changing part of Fremantle.
