CALL FOR PROPOSALS
CALL FOR PROPOSALS FOR WORKS TO ANIMATE PUBLIC SPACES IN THE QUARTIER DES SPECTACLES
From December 8, 2016 to January 29, 2017, the winning designers will present an installation on the Place des Festivals that creates a sense of wonder both day and night, while encouraging the participation of a broad audience, including families. Architectural video projections for two adjacent building façades will complete a unified concept through integration with the narrative structure of the primary work.
The free competition is Canada-wide and open to teams whose lead designer is based in Canada. The jury will favour projects that combine a variety of perspectives by bringing together multiple disciplines: design, the performing arts, visual and media arts, etc. The total production budget is $300,000.
The contest was launched December 10 2015. The winner will be announced October 2016. For more information about the finalists and all the propositions received :
