CfP- Alter-Realities: Designing the Present | Porto Design Biennale

Deadline January 17, 2021

Website | Application

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.
