Make: Believe UK Design for Performance 2011 – 2015

Stage 1 Intent to Exhibit deadline has now past.

We do have some places remaining.

If you are already a member of SBTD, click on this link to fill in Stage 1 and then continue to Stage 2 below.

The SBTD’s new national exhibition will open in the newly redesigned Newton atrium exhibition spaces at Nottingham Trent University from 14 – 30 January 2015. Selected work will be shown at the next PQ in Prague from 17 – 28 June 2015, at the V&A Museum in London for 9 months from early July 2015 and at a further 3/4 galleries throughout the UK from March 2016. The exhibition title, Make:Believe, indicates the vision, skills and commitment found in the diversity of performance design today. It will feature work that defines the edges of this artform-in-industry – in music festivals, large scale events such as the Olympics, Paralympics, community opera, found space and promenade performance, in digital, landscape, heritage and media contexts, as well as the intimate and highly valued work that designers are currently doing in education, health and various community settings. We intend to celebrate the high quality of designs for a variety of theatre spaces, the traditions of pantomime design, the ravishing visuals that transform many children’s books into stage spectaculars as well as the dance and opera designs by UK designers that are notable around the world. Make:Believe also acknowledges and promotes the development of new performance spaces, the re-envisioning of old and existing buildings and the increasing commitment to sustainable design and practices in both production and performance environments. Make:Believe will also include a research project into the training/education, employment and careers of performance designers in the 21st century. The SBTD is ideally placed, as the professional UK organisation for performance designers, to offer the only national scale exhibition and publication opportunity to all UK professional designers and artists in performance, bringing them together with their work to share experiences, discuss important issues of employment, training, continuing education and the widening contexts and content of this work. The exhibition will be accompanied by a full colour catalogue that will include designers’ commentaries on their work. The full National Exhibition Information Pack can be downloaded here.
