Interested in running an event? Architecture at the Edge is excited to announce submissions for the AATE Festival 2024 are now open!

The 2024 edition of the Architecture at the Edge festival will include the presentation of ‘In Search of Hy-Brasil – Ireland’s national pavilion at the Venice Architecture Biennale 2023’. The project examines the relationship between the islands of Ireland and their natural environment and puts our islands’ diverse communities, culture, and experiences right at the centre of the discourse surrounding our shared future.

AATE seeks to expand on the themes explored via Hy-Brasil and offer a platform for others to open further questions and actions on the potential future with relevance to the broader cultural, material, ecological and environmental challenges that we face.

For its next edition, we are seeking proposals that draws connections between the social fabric, cultural landscape, and ecology of these islands, and engage with all that is implied in the island, as an environmental, geographical and social construct.

We invite applications from architects, artists, researchers, filmmakers, activists, designers, and other creatives whose projects touches on themes including (but not limited to) historic cultures of making; the use of renewable, natural materials; rising sea levels and coastal communities; marine ecosystems; food sovereignty; importation and supply chains; islander identities and cultural connections.

The open call is set with the intention of exploring Islands in topographical and metaphorical senses. We encourage applicants to interpret the brief as openly as possible.

Through the call, we will select three projects to be featured during the #AATE Festival, September 27 - October 06, 2024.

The maximum allowance available of €2,500; includes the fee for your time, production costs, contributing to the marketing and evaluation of the festival.
