Toni and I will be reading poetry at DADA '09 in Vancouver on Saturday. Poets and artists are welcome, but it sounds like you need to act fast. My thanks to tireless radio maven Cara Cottingham for informing me about this.
Check out this description of Saturday's event from DADA organizer Greg Bee:
In Vancouver WA, our Dada is the brainchild of myself, Greg Bee.
In 2005 Raygun joined forces with Shameless Productions to create Zombie Dada. A festival of art, costume, politics, music, and of course, zombies. Weeks of exhaustive planning have gone into all the dada's since then to make these events true to their purpose and roots. The results have been a joining of the outsider art community to create a random event celebrating expression and art of all genres, levels, and mediums. For the sake of art, we continue to have dada's. the next dada is not just a shameless project, but a product of the entire deconstructionist art community of Vancouver WA.
This year we already have a great group of visual artists and musicians as well as other performers attending and showing off they're projects.
We would love to have a representation of our poet, writer and spoken word friends to represent Vancouver's written art forms.
Any ideas or desires to share your creativity with Dada would be appreciated. If interested you're welcome to attend the artists hanging at 1602 lincoln ave, downtown vancouver, wa. 6-9pm on thursday the 15th of October. Or just come to the actual event on oct. 17th 3-9pm at the same address.
