Call for Exhibition and Performance at WSD / Scenofest 2021

World Stage Design
Calgary, Alberta, Canada
August 5 to 15, 2021

World Stage Design (WSD) is the first and only designer-based exhibition to showcase and celebrate performance design from individual designers. Held every four years, WSD has now travelled to four cities, Toronto, Canada (2005); Seoul, South Korea (2009); Cardiff, Wales, UK (2013); Taipei, Taiwan. The fifth WSD exhibition will be held in Calgary, Canada.

The WSD2021 exhibitions are open to all designers for performance. We encourage individual designers to forward their work for consideration by the international selection jury. Designers are invited to attend this global event, which will include Scenofest, offering opportunities for multicultural exchange.

World Stage Design (WSD) is an OISTAT event held that is comprised of 4 distinct components that are presented simultaneously:

1. International Design Exhibition and Competition
2. Scenofest
3. Theatre Architecture Competition (TAC)
4. Technical Invention Prize (TIP)

Categories

The Exhibition will divide into the following categories for both Professional and Emerging Designers:

  • Performance Design
  • Space Design
  • Set Design, Sound Design, Costume Design, Lighting Design, Projection Design
