DADAA: Touch and Create App
The Touch and Create App is part of a larger Digital Inclusion program by Disability in the Arts, Disadvantage in the Arts WA (DADAA) and provides an interactive tool for artists with a disability to create art and share their work online.
A $239,527 Lotterywest grant towards project costs helped DADAA undertake digital technology training for people with high support needs, creating the opportunity for self-expression through arts participation, social and recreational activities.
Simone Flavelle, Manager of DADAA’s Digital Inclusion program, said that the funding has helped to broaden DADAA’s reach.
“The Lotterywest grant has enabled us to introduce 38 artists with a disability to digital technology,” she said.
“The project will be shared with other individuals and organisations on an ongoing basis, to further support people with high needs in using technology.”
