The objective of the programme is to inquire the connection between the oppression of girls , POC, LGBTI+ everywhere the planet , and therefore the destruction of the environment, while revealing design’s potential to instigate new processes, and spark global changes stemming from social, political and ecological endeavours.
The project aims at enabling researchers to contribute to establishing a special relationship with nature through collaborations across borders, institutions, and disciplines. It also aims at advancing and stimulating knowledge exchange within the field of design, and contributing to making a sustainable common lebensraum , in empathy with nature and every one species. The programme will foster collective research methodologies also as sorts of solidarity and responsibility within the planning field that would lead not only to ecological but also spatial, political, and social transformations.
The research projects will still evolve until October 2021 with support from the Istanbul Design Biennial, enriched by regular digital meetings held between researchers, and supervised by the evaluation board.
At the top of the program, the chosen research projects are going to be presented during a display at a digital archive, a replacement public research space, which can be created by the Istanbul Design Biennial. A digital publication with essays, and visual research also will be delivered to life. Four selected participants are going to be awarded 1.000 USD each to initiate and develop their research projects.
Women practitioners and thinkers including designers, artists, writers, curators, researchers, and academics from the US and Turkey are welcome to use for the programme until 28 April 2021.
