Open Programme

op_slider_extndopen programme – deadline: 14.05.2014 

The Open Programme offers a chance to show one’s own projects at the Festival. Enrolment for the 8th edition of the Łódź Design Festival 2014 is open to everyone, but aimed particularly at institutions, curators, artists and designers who would like to share fruit of their work with the public.

The multitude of forms, genres and techniques of works submitted each year to the Open Programme makes it an exceptional section of the Festival – from multimedia shows, through sound installations, to traditional exhibition forms. Partners play significant role in broadening the context of search for new design trends. The Festival Programming Board makes a selection from the submitted proposals, and chooses most interesting ones, which will be presented at the Festival.

The works submitted to the Open Programme section must relate to the mission statement of this year edition of the Łódź Design Festival – “Brave New World”. The interpretation of this motto should rest on the following:

- The present and the future of design
- Changes in the field of design
- The role of design in the world- and human development
- The courage in challenging stereotypes as well as searching for and presenting new solutions.

Before submitting an application one ought to make sure that the project is a finished curatorial concept described in a transparent fashion, incorporating all the elements essential for presentation: required floor space, exhibition area conditions and other aspects specific to the project.

Detailed conditions for submission are included in the Festival guidelines.

The recruitment for the Open Programme section is completed. Thanks for all the submissions!
