    "Art's Birthday" is an annual event first proposed in 1963 by French artist
    Robert Filliou.

    He suggested that 1,000,000 years ago, there was no art. But one day, on the
    17th of January to be precise, Art was born. According to Filliou, it happened
    when someone dropped a dry sponge into a bucket of water. Modest beginnings,
    but look at us now.

    Filliou proposed a public holiday to celebrate the presence of art in our lives.
    In recent years, the idea has been taken up by a loose network of artists and
    friends around the world. Each year the Eternal Network evolves to include new
    partners - working with the ideas of exchange and telecommunications-art.

    Artists have celebrated Art's Birthday with lavish parties and gatherings,
    correspondence and mailart, and through Telematic networks using SloScan TV,
    Videophones, music composed for telephone lines, modem-to-modem MIDI
    connections, early bulletin board and chat systems, and (starting in the mid
    1990's) the Internet.

    The Art´s Birthday website includes links to many of the participants from
    recent years, and an incomplete chronology of past events. This is the third
    year when Nomadic Academy takes part in Art´s Birthday.

    Other events of the International Art´s Birthday 2012 include:
