First TaDA Spinnerei 4th December 2020, livestream

TaDA – Textile and Design Alliance Artist in Residence Programme

On Friday, 4th December 2020, from 10.00 to 17.00, the annual TaDA Spinnerei event will take place (TaDA’s second public format besides the residencies). It will be streamed live on The TaDA residents will present the initial results of their stay, followed by discussions with experts. The talks will be moderated by Hochparterre editor Meret Ernst and TaDA programme head Marianne Burki. 

What happens when creative people from different disciplines engage in a direct exchange of ideas with entrepreneurs from the textile industry? What happens when artists test machines and processes? And how are innovation, luxury and sustainability connected? 
The new TaDA Textile and Design Alliance residency programme was launched in September 2020 in Eastern Switzerland. Over a period of three months, the five residents from different disciplines – Stéphanie Baechler, Alexandra Hopf, Oliver Maklott, Selina Reiterer and Quang Vinh Nguyen – worked with various companies in Eastern Switzerland. On 4th December, they will give insights into the processes and projects that were developed during the first TaDA residency. In the afternoon, experts and residents will discuss the topics “innovation and luxury”, “sustainable production” and “sufficiency – the view from outside”. The debate can be accessed by live streaming.

Further details on the TaDA Spinnerei programme will soon be available on
The TaDA cultural promotion programme was jointly launched by the Cantons of Appenzell Ausserrhoden, St.Gallen and Thurgau.
