15th Anniversary Report

“LADA has been instrumental in the development of the UK Live Art culture, and in creating international connections and helping the transit of rebel artists across borders.” Guillermo Gomez-Pena, LADA Patron

We are very pleased to share our 15th Anniversary Report, highlighting a selection of our projects, publications, resources and opportunities since 1999.

Over the last 15 years, LADA has had the pleasure of working with some of the most challenging artists, practices and ideas of our times, and, through our partnerships and collaborations, has contributed to many critical developments for Live Art in the UK and internationally.

We hope you enjoy the Report. As we reach the midway point in our Anniversary year, we would also like to encourage you to look at other celebratory activities on our new website, including Podcasts and Limited Editions.
