Art’s Birth­day is an an­nual event first pro­posed in 1973, when French artist Robert Fil­liou an­nounced that art was born 1,000,010 years ago when some­one dropped a dry sponge into a bucket of wa­ter. Fil­liou pro­posed a pub­lic hol­i­day and his idea has been taken up by a net­work of artists around the world. More de­tails: www. com­passliveart.org.uk
