Our Commitment

Under the leadership of Artistic Director Wendy Martin, PIAF has a four year commitment to presenting work by the world’s leading artists with disabilities. This commitment addresses a core value of the Festival’s artistic vision to celebrate difference and develop diverse audiences.

Over the next four years, in partnership with DADAA PIAF will champion accessibility for artists and audiences. This partnership will create opportunities for a dynamic exchange of ideas and practice between visiting international artists with disabilities and the Western Australian and national arts community and audiences.
