Open Call for Projects Porto Design Biennale ’21 invites designers and cultural agents to present projects that are able to enrich the reflection on the general theme Alter-Realities: Designing the Present in the areas of exhibitions/installations, interventions/events, collaborations/co-productions, workshops/training, discussion/colloquia, and publishing/editions.

This edition, operating in pandemic times, asks, How can we make and prototype together, reveal, critique and amplify Alter-Realities in order to reorientate ourselves towards futures where trust in each other is restored, where regeneration not destruction is evident, and where we find a new relationality between us and Others?
