News From DaDaFest


Introduction from Ruth Gould

Greetings from DaDaFest – as the silly season is almost upon us, I was eager to send out a final e–letter of the year.

It has been a year of changes and interesting happenings. We successfully retained our Arts Council funding,  Young DaDaFest was even better and stronger with two fringe events, and we have developed a very challenging and exciting programme for the next DaDaFest International – more news on this at the end of January.

My illness has had an unexpected impact on my time in the office, but my thanks go to the incredible staff team for keeping the art plans alive and delivering on all our objectives. I was grateful for the constant contact with them and thankful for  all the best wishes from across the globe. Social media really comes into its own with such matters, making our world smaller, united and more cherished.  
Sadly, this year we have endured the loss of key artists and activists dying before their time, including our dearly loved Patron Sir Bert Massie.  We will think of them, especially their loved ones over this holiday season. 

May I wish you a joyous, peaceful and Happy Christmas and New Year.
