To explore ways in which design festivals can act as agents for positive change, VIENNA DESIGN WEEK, in collaboration with the British Council, calls U.K.-based practitioners to submit proposals for curatorial research.
Closing date: 14 Jun 2020
VIENNA DESIGN WEEK is Austria’s largest and most international curated design festival. With its venue and guest country changing yearly, it is a platform for a wide range of design disciplines, including experimental, speculative, and digital positions. The festival’s efforts are driven by the realisation that the toolkit of design is more relevant for society than ever.
To explore ways in which design festivals can act as agents for positive change in an ever-changing world, VIENNA DESIGN WEEK, in collaboration with the British Council, calls U.K.-based practitioners to submit proposals for curatorial research focussing on VIENNA DESIGN WEEK in its international context.
In keeping with the festival’s ethos, they actively encourage innovative, even unorthodox methodologies of research, curation, and presentation. They would like to invite curators to delve into the inner workings of VIENNA DESIGN WEEK and research how it fits into the international festival scene, as well as ideas for new formats. Having been part of the British Council’s Design Connections programme, they were inspired to create new opportunities and networks for collaboration with the UK design sector, and to think about what the UK as guest country for VIENNA DESIGN WEEK 2021 might look like.
