Call for projects: Biennale Internationale Design Saint-Étienne 2019

The 2019 Biennale will refect on the general public reality of design. How can design reach the larger audience by making technology accessible? How does design take up local culture and practices and transform them into creations, products, services, systems? In parallel with this theme, China is invited to deploy the present and the future of its design production in several exhibitions, including the one held by ESADSE.

Currently preparing the ESADSE exhibition for the Biennale Internationale Design Saint-Etienne 2019 which will take place from 21 March to 22 April 2019, we are happy to announce the Esadse Call for projects for the Design Schools.

Context: China will be the guest of honour of the next 2019 edition of the Biennale Internationale Design Saint-Etienne. We are thus seeking for the projects that would highlight French, European and our Partner Schools’ collaborations with China. These could result from the common projects, workshops, events with your Chinese partners contributing to the emergence of a contemporary design, in which the mutual influence of the two cultures would give rise to a Third Way. The selected projects will be part of 500 m exhibition during the Biennale Internationale Design Saint-Etienne.

To apply: We are looking forward to receiving your expression of interests including:

  • school fact sheet (name, e-mail address of the school contact person)
  • duly completed project form (attached) 

before the 2nd July 2018 at [email protected]
