We are coming to the end of the project now but are looking for a designer who work to visually draw together a body of short essays produced by each of the partners to reflect on the Understanding Territoriality themes and the learning of the project. Details of the commission can be found here:
On an annual basis Skopje unites the world’s most remarkable designers and innovators in one place and gives them a chance to communicate with a broad audience, the regional commercial sector and local educational institutions. SDW is run by Otvorena Soba/Public Room and features the outcomes of the Understanding Territoriality residencies that were hosted at public room earlier this year.
The first stage of the residencies of three emerging designers has taken place at Public Room, Skopje. More details of the project can be found on the Public Room website: www.publicroom.org/projects/TIPP-SkopjeResidences.html
