On behalf of OISTAT, we would like to officially call for proposals to host World Stage Design 2025 (WSD). OISTAT designates the WSD location four years in advance to provide sufficient time for planning and securing resources for the whole WSD project.
World Stage Design (WSD) is an OISTAT event held every 4 years that is comprised of 4 distinct components that are presented simultaneously:
In addition to the 4 components of WSD, the OISTAT World Congress will also be held during WSD.
The primary goal of World Stage Design has been to present an exhibition of designers work that explores the breadth and diversity of international design practice.
Each WSD has developed a complimentary programme of activities representative of all of OISTAT’s commissions: The Scenofest. This has in the past included performance programmes, symposiums, workshops and masterclass programmes. Each WSD organizer is invited to create their own unique Scenofest programme to run alongside the exhibition.
WSD moving forward as a quadrennial project of OISTAT will connect creators, practitioners, artists and audiences in an international festival and celebration of performance design, theatre architecture and technical theatre.
At the World Congress in Calgary, Canada in 2021, we will give interested contenders the opportunity to present their vision and plans for WSD2025. After the World Congress, the newly elected Executive Committee shall evaluate the proposals and designate the location for WSD2025 before February 2022. OISTAT Headquarters and Executive Committee will form an advisory group to facilitate the preparation process of WSD.
Bid guidelines for hosting WSD2025 are detailed as following:
