We are excited to share LADA’s 2018/19 Annual Review, highlighting a selection of the many events, opportunities, publications and research projects that we have produced between April 2018 – March 2019.
2018/19 was another busy year for LADA and our first full year in our new home The Garrett Centre, Bethnal Green. Over the last year we have released multiple publications including AGENCY: A Partial History of Live Art, looking back at the last 20 years of Live Art through the lens of LADA, edited by Theron Schmidt, we welcomed new staff, expanded our range of resources and research initiatives (including artist oppurtunities, commissions and bursaries) and completed another monster size DIY programme. We delivered multiple public projects and programmes including Edge of an Era, and the start of a year long programme marking LADA’s 20th Anniversary.
This years annual review has been dedicated to the brilliant artist Katherine Araniello who died on Monday 25 February 2019.
Katherine was an extraordinary human being, a fearless activist, a long-standing LADA Board member and an artist central to so many lives. LADA is working on Katherine’s legacies with her family and partner Tracey Jannaway, including an Annual Katherine Araniello Bursary Award.
The Annual Review is available to view online or in printed tabloid form (if you would like a copy mailed please contact us with your details). The online PDF headings and images are linked to provide more information.
