Cultivating spaces for extraordinary artists

We Are Invisible We Are Visible

DaDa is dead. Long live DaDa!​​​​​​​


On 2 July 2022, 31 Disabled artists disrupted 30 locations with surreal interventions, in recognition of the 102nd anniversary of the first DaDa International Exhibition.

We are currently busy processing and recording all of the images and feedback from the artists and galleries, and a film to capture the project is also underway at 104films.com​​​​​​​.

Alongside the interventions Disability Arts Online were commissioned by DASH to produce a Zine, distributed at venues on the day, as well as the WAIWAV website.

This will no doubt prove a valuable resource documenting Dada and Disability Arts.

Look out for social media, blogs and newsletter updates that celebrate this ambitious event.
