MAINTENANT 14 DADA Journal Call for Submissions 

The world is hurtling in a direction that simply isn’t sustainable. DADA came from the absurdity of war, and the destruction to the planet right now is absolutely war, with potentially billions of victims. And so, the theme for MAINTENANT 14 is:

Everyone in the world is affected by the growing impact of climate change, pollution, plastics, and lack of sustainability. We are seeking submissions from every country, every continent, and every artist. 

DADA is a “final frontier” for rebel artists. You are invited to expose, identify, retaliate, overcome, and react to the FUTURE OF THE PLANET!! 

We encourage all types of DADA writing and art—to get an idea of what we’re looking for, pick up a copy of one of our previous issues. The more absurd, the better! Be a part of a global rebellion in creativity.
