OPEN CALL FOR PORTO DESIGN BIENNALE
Inviting designers, cultural agents and social innovators to present projects as exhibitions, installations, interventions, workshops, discussions and publishing. Submissions deadline January 17, 2021.
Open call for projects PDB’21 invites designers and cultural agents to present projects that are able to enrich the reflection on the general theme Alter-Realities: Designing the Present in the areas of exhibitions/installations, interventions/events, collaborations/co-productions, workshops/training, discussion/colloquia, and publishing/editions.
This edition, operating in pandemic times, asks, How can we make and prototype together, reveal, critique and amplify alter-realities in order to reorientate ourselves towards futures where trust in each other is restored, where regeneration not destruction is evident, and where we find a new relationality between us and Others?
The projects to be supported, in a maximum of 10, will autonomously integrate the Satellite Activities programming of the PDB’21 Alter-Realities: Designing the Present and must be held or exhibited during the PDB’21, between June 4 and July 25, 2021.
Authors must choose and propose their venue[s] of preference, necessarily located in the territorial scope of the two cities that promote the PDB – Porto and Matosinhos.
