Western Australia – Fireworks and Festivals

In Western Australia, DADAA provide live audio description for 15 to 20 major arts exhibitions and events each year.

As a non-profit organisation, DADAA promotes cultural participation for people who are blind and vision-impaired by providing audio description for live performance, festivals and theatre, including the Fringe World Festival, Sculpture by the Sea, and hit musicals at Crown Perth and Perth Arena.

Thanks to DADAA, the Australia Day fireworks over Perth were audio described in 2018. However, there can be limited places available due to budget restraints. Only 25 audio description headsets were available at this event.
