NDIS and the arts
Did you know that you can include the arts in your NDIS plan? DADAA is a NDIS-registered provider and people eligible for NDIS can have their programs at DADAA written into their plan.
Under the NDIS, art activities are categorised as social and economic participation, skills development, pathways to employment, and health and wellbeing. Whether you join a workshop or one-to-one mentoring, the programs you choose at DADAA will be designed to help you achieve your goals at a personal, professional, and social level.
You can learn more about the role of art can play in the lives of people with disability in this video from Arts Access Victoria.
