World Stage Design(WSD) is the first and only designer-based exhibition to showcase and celebrate theatre designs from individual designers. Held every four years, the first World Stage Design was mounted in Toronto, Canada, in 2005. The event was inaugurated to celebrate designs around the globe, and is in two-year intervals with the Prague Quadrennial. Recognizing the growing amount of remarkable designs each year in each territory, World Stage Design focuses on the work of the individual designer in contrast to the designs at the Prague event, which are selected by curators of each nation, and are exhibited as representative of the nations concerned. World Stage Design has now travelled to four cities, Toronto, Canada(2005), Seoul, South Korea(2009), and Cardiff, UK(2013). The 2017 World Stage Design will be held in Taipei, Taiwan.
