TaDA – Textile and Design Alliance


TaDA is a joint cultural promotion programme run by the cantons of St.Gallen, Appenzell Ausserrhoden and Thurgau. Its goal is to promote artistic dialogue with the eastern Swiss textile and design culture and thus strengthen the regional identity. Each year, TaDA offers a work stay in Switzerland to six national and international personalities. The residents develop innovative projects in the fields of art, design, architecture, literature, the performing arts or in transdisciplinary contexts. As programme partners, textile and design companies in Eastern Switzerland make their know-how and technology available to the artists, thus giving the residents an opportunity to do artistic work and carry out applied research. For their part, the partners benefit from the
creative exchange with the practitioners invited. On the occasion of various public events, the work results are presented to the public.
