Designers in Residence 2020: Open Call

Ti restano 100 giorni

Organizzato da :

Designers in Residence is a core part of the museum’s programme. It has two main aims: to provide designers in the early stages of their careers time and space to develop their practice and produce new work, and to offer museum visitors an opportunity to engage with live design projects.

Following an open call the museum selects four designers working in different disciplines, to further develop their individual responses to the theme and brief. Successful residents will share the museum’s Designers in Residence Studio, which provides a place for the residents to work as well as a space to exhibit their finished projects.

Each resident is provided with a commissioning budget of £6,000, which goes directly towards producing the work that will be presented at the end of the residency. A bursary of £8,000 is also offered to support the development of their career and to fund their practice.
