102 Ways to Celebrate Dada

To mark the 102nd anniversary of the 1st Dada International Exhibition in Berlin, 31 d/Deaf, Disabled and Neurodivergent artists will stage Dada inspired interventions in 30 museums and galleries across Britain and Northern Ireland on​​​​​​​ 2 July 2022.

Find out more about this ambitious project here: We Are Invisible, We Are Visible.

Why not join in the fun and release your inner Dada.

Ideas for how to get involved:

  • My Dada inspired celebration will be to collage a hair slide with dada dada and then wear it all day, as I travel around Birmingham. I will also pop into the Ikon on that day. Helen Grundy

  • Using dictionaries in language, cut out words at random. Once you have a pile of words, put them through a garden sieve and use the first word through as the starting point for a costume. Catherine Wynne-Paton

  • I shall be posting a self portrait with the words Dada hand drawn with in it several times throughout the day on my social media. Tanya Raabe-Webber

  • ArtStudio0nLine collective will create a Dada collage and will post it on the day on social media

  • Artist Amanda Lynch is joining the 102nd Anniversary celebrations. She is calling for artists to share art, writing and performances on Saturday 2nd July as part of 'The Other Intervention'.
