South Designs

Call for projects

Laura Nkula-Wenz, Kenny Cupers

CALL EXTENDED! New deadline for submission: 15th of July '22

How does the South design planetary futures? What do design responses to climate change look like when they are grounded in the aspirations and struggles of those most affected? How does design grapple with radical ecological interdependence in conditions of enduring injustice, everyday uncertainty, and rapid urban change? As part of the Governing through Design research collective funded by the Swiss National Science Foundation, South Designs invites project proposals that address these questions through creative, collaborative, and speculative practice.

Six proposals will be funded with a grant of 15,000 CHF each. Submit your proposal by Friday, 15th of July 2022.
