Taking place between 1-9 October, the theme for AATE Festival 2022 is 'repair'. The festival will showcase architectural projects that are conceived through ‘acts of repair’ and ask, what might repair mean in the context of architecture?
The festival will feature films, exhibitions, workshops, symposiums and performances contributed by international artists, designers and artists and co-created with the communities of West Ireland.
Interested in taking part? We are looking for events, exhibitions and designs which respond to the festival’s 2022 theme of repair. The Open Call searches for visionary ideas and examples on how to repair: What are the practical, architectural, and social features of our communities in need of repair? How can new urban areas become more diverse and socially and environmentally sustainable?
ATE aims to encourage and develop other voices in event organisation, exhibition production, curation, writing and cultural leadership in Ireland to support our public programme - expanding the practice of architecture. AATE is open to anyone with an interest in a progressive future for architecture and the built environment.
What do we ask? Working with close assistance from the AATE production team, and with a small self-directed budget of up to €2,000, AATE invites contributions from event producers/ arts organisations in submissions of new cultural work for the AATE Festival 2022 core programme in October, responding to this year’s thematic provocation of Repair.
Selected submissions will be exhibited during the Architecture at the Edge Festival in October 1-9 2022, to an audience of the broad public. The open call launches on Friday 17 June 2022 and closes for confirmed submissions at 12 noon on Monday 11 July 2022.
The maximum allowance available of €2,000 includes the fee for your time, production costs, contributing to the marketing and evaluation of the festival
