The physical meeting about the research call Designing living environments was replaced by a webinar, held in English. The webinar offered hands on information about the call and how to apply and a live Q&A chat. The research call is open 14 February to 6 May 2020.
The webinar was live casted 13.30-15.15 on Tuesday 24 March. It was published on the websites of Public Art Agency Sweden and Formas after the live cast.
Formas’ new call, in collaboration with Public Art Agency Sweden, ArkDes, the Swedish National Board of Housing, Building and Planning and the Swedish National Heritage Board, welcomes research that will shed light on artistic perspectives and the role of public art for those of us who work with sustainable, designed living environments.
The contributors to the programme was restricted from meeting in person and from having a joint participation due to the new regulations regarding COVID-19. Public Art Agency Sweden was contributing from a distance in the webinar, addressing questions raised from the audience in the chat.
What is a designed living environment? How can art, in collaboration with other disciplines, explore alternative ways of defining and shaping our living environments?
Formas’ funding makes it possible for artists, architects and researchers to come together in a joint project, creating the opportunity for an in-depth conversation and raise issues on what sustainability can mean today and in the future.
