Open call for Slovenian creatives

-

As part of the inter-institutional exhibition of the Triennial of Handicrafts and Crafts, which will take place from September 14 to October 14, 2023 in the Koroška galerija likovnih umetnosti, the Center for Creativity/MAO, under the auspices of the European platform Distributed Design, is announcing the second open call for co-productions of series in a limited edition CzK #2, within which we will select up to 10 works by Slovenian creators who, with the help of financial incentives, will design a new product or visibly update an existing one for the purpose of presentation at the central exhibition of the Triennial of Handicrafts and Crafts 2023 and later also at the Museum of Architecture and Design (MAO).

The Center for Creativity and MAO, as custodians of the most comprehensive collection of Slovenian architectural and design heritage, and at the same time a space for modern creation, exchange of knowledge and a source of inspiration for creators, with this public appeal address the current topic of connecting modern design production with the rich cultural heritage of handicrafts and crafts as a source inspiration and ideas for modern, innovative, sustainable and local production based on natural materials, traditional knowledge and skills.

Designers, artists, craftsmen, artisans and other creators and collectives are invited to participate. The result of the cooperation will be the co-production of a product, a prototype or an upgrade of an already existing product in a limited edition, which will be presented within the framework of the Triennial of Crafts and Crafts and at events and exhibitions of the Center for Creativity, the Museum of Architecture and Design and the Distributed Design platform at home and abroad.
