My name is Ester Rovira Carbonell and I am a designer from Barcelona based in Cambridge for two years. I founded Dadà because I thought that the concept of infantile didn't fit my beliefs. I looked for a name that identified my intentions and I found in Dadaism and its idea of rebellion many answers. Dada began its journey from intuition and, slowly but surely, it has become my passion. I curate and design artistic projects that combine current themes with all the arts. I basically believe that art generates awareness and that the idea of merging different disciplines shows another side of things and offers children other perspectives. The proposals are for children and teenagers because they are the ones who inspire me; they are the great creators - the bravest and the most powerful -, the essential transformers, the excellent bearers and, without a doubt, the best of our futures. The concepts of Dada are contemporary, fresh and, perhaps, reckless. There is no established method, I don't like it, each new project is a challenge, a unique opportunity to do better. I always try to confuse the limits in order to rethink realities and make them different from an aesthetic point of view. I learn to leave space, to take distance and to be in silence in order to be able to enter into the research of great knowledge. Each new project generates a new team made up of artists or professionals who I believe can contribute to the idea, guide us along the way and share their experience with us. Enriching and complex dialogues are generated that make each proposal broader and that, above all, make us leave our areas of comfort and make us grow. We make small families that end up interacting with each other without the need to make them fixed or definitive. I would like to change the world, I would like to help to make it better, sustainable, sensitive and possible, I would like to teach how to look in another way!
