This social network lets you have conversations through drawings

Create a drawing on DADA and anyone around the world can reply with another drawing. 


Chitchat is a great cornerstone of art. Someone grander might call it 'communication' or 'discussion', but it’s all the same thing: responding to others, yourself, society or even other art that could have been created lifetimes ago. You know, chitchat. 

DADA has grabbed that idea and taken it to a fun, surprising place. In a world of Twitter, Facebook and, er, Star Trek Dating, why not have  a social network where you communicate through drawing? 80,000 users with 150,000 drawings (between them, that is, not each) can clearly see why.

Bizarre, fun and a hive of unrestricted imagination, the creations on DADA are unique. It is an artist's playground (but without the rules).

Simply draw on the DADA sketchpad and anyone from across the world can reply with a drawing of their own. 

Like their verbal counterparts, visual conversations take on different moods and themes unpredictably. 

Whether this new visual form of talking catches on or not, we still don't care: it's still better than emojis.

DADA is strongly building on equally strong foundations from creator Beatriz Helena Ramos -who is a prolific illustrator for the likes of the New York Times, Disney and MTV.
