What is MetaDada?
MetaDada '19 is the second edition of a 36 hr experimental art festival, in a beautiful old distillery just outside of Berlin. It’s a space set up to empower creators to unlock their full potential and connect with others. It brings together up to 150 talented people from all different backgrounds, including artists, makers, entrepreneurs, coders, educators, writers and more. In interdisciplinary teams, creators experiment and develop concepts in response to a particular theme before inviting others to experience their work on the main stage, in a gallery, the cinema, or wherever the occasion demands. There will also be workshops and other performances, food, drinks, music and space to chat, dance and mingle.
At MetaDada 2018 numerous friendships, a dozen plus collaborative partnerships and even two relationships were born and last until today. We can't wait to find out who'll connect, and what will be created at MetaDada '19.
The old distillery at Gutshof Genshagen is located an hour away from Berlin and includes a big gallery space, a lounge, a bar, a stage, a movie cell, a basement and a beautiful big green area. There will be a separate sleeping zone with showers included in the ticket price.
MetaDada is a festival co-created by a diverse community of creators who together explore and develop concepts and share experiences within a timely theme. Around a semi-structured agenda of workshops, and performances, creators are given space to be creative in developing their projects, receiving feedback and engaging in discussions. The process is supported by a small number of Creators in Residence who act as moderators and performers in their own right. We developed the concept specifically to encourage interdisciplinary inspiration, new connections and new perspectives.
The Theme (2019)
The Future We Live In. Do you ever feel like you’re living in the future? Hell, in 2019 flying cars are legitimately being tested, you might even have an AI girlfriend (or boyfriend) soon, and some of you have already given away rights to your genetic data in exchange for a nice graph of your family tree!
Do you like where we’re headed, or not? Either way, this is your chance to do something constructive about it. At MetaDada 2019 we encourage you to explore and create future experiences that are either absurdly real or refreshingly positive. Don’t just complain about Facebook, work with others to design a post-Facebook society. Love the possibilities of true diversity in leadership positions, how different might the world look? Co-create, experience, connect.

Help Us Make It Happen!
We – that’s Matt, Govinda and Nora – started MetaDada in 2018 in response to a need we felt was unmet. We were convinced that in our busy modern lives, people need space (and time) to create which they just can’t seem to find. MetaDada is about escaping the city, taking time to focus, to share and learn about a topic. It’s also about connecting with new people and disciplines, and allowing creativity to flourish. MetaDada 2018 showed us that the concept works. Not only did we see 80 young and old creatives realizing different pieces, performances, films and workshops, but also numerous new friendships and collaborations which were build and last until today.
To make it all happen again in 2019, bigger and better, we need your help! We’ve reserved the venue for May 10th-12th and begun necessary preparations behind the scenes. But it’s simply not possible to run it without money for the venue rental, lighting and sound equipment, space construction and countless little things!
With Kickstarter it’s all or nothing. Only by reaching our funding goal, with your support, will we be able to make MetaDada 2019 happen! So please help us provide you with a space to be creative, make friends, build connections and imagine the future... Whether you buy a ticket, become our Super Sponsor or just donate a little, every cent counts!! Thank you!
