DiDe Distretto del Design and Festival del Tempo launch the International Call for Residencies for the third edition of the Genova BeDesign Week 18-22 May 2022

Deadline for submitting applications 16 April 2022

On the occasion of the Genova BeDesign Week 2022, which will take place in Genoa from May 18th to May 22nd, 2022, DiDe Distretto del Design and Festival del Tempo jointly announce an international call for proposals in order to assign residencies for the creation of installations within a part of the historic center of Genoa. These two entities, in fact, have been working for years on the social, cultural, economic and spiritual regeneration of the urban fabric in which they are inserted: in particular, this year’s edition of the Genoa BeDesign Week has taken Time as its main theme, finding clear connections with the aims and objectives of the Festival del Tempo.

The theme of the competition is focused on the relationship between body and space-time: the installations must be site-specific works that can relate to the places and the external and/or internal spaces of a part of the historic center of Genoa and that eventually involve the local community by enhancing specific identities and peculiarities. Participation in the call is free and open to all citizens resident in Italy or abroad, from 18 years of age, without limits of nationality, gender, ethnicity or religion. The residency will take place from Saturday, May 14 to Sunday, May 22, 2022: the projects will be inaugurated on May 18 and will be open to the public until May 22, throughout the duration of the Genoa BeDesign Week 2022.

Genova, Piazza Pollaiuoli

The winners of the competition (the precise number will soon be communicated) will receive a prize of € 500.00, hospitality and assistance for the entire period of residency, thereby having the opportunity to participate in one of the most important events at national level and get in touch with professionals, cultural operators and companies. The deadline for applications is April 16, 2022 and all information and the call for entries are available on the websites of DiDe Distretto del Design and Festival del Tempo
