Færderbiennalen 2024 Architecture (Norway)

Graphic with the text 'open call'.

Færderbiennalen, an international festival for site-specific dance and architecture located in the coastal area of Tønsberg and Færder, Southern Norway, is looking for project proposals for temporary architectural installations to be presented in the city of Tønsberg or on the islands of Nøtterøy, Hvasser, Brøtsø and Tjøme, Vestfold county, Norway. The selected projects will be presented during the Færder Biennale 2024 in the scenic coastal area of Tønsberg and Færder, Norway, within the timeframe July to August 2024.

Initiated by a collective of architects and performing arts curators, Færderbiennalen had its first edition in August 2023. August 2024 will be the first full-scale festival, presenting Norwegian and international architecture installations and site-specific dance performances of high artistic quality – site specific and in public space in the whole area.

Sustainability is a central value, and both existing installations and new works will be considered. Projects will be selected by an international jury according to aesthetic, technical feasibility and sustainability criteria, as well as relevance in the geographical/landscape area. Site responsiveness, and works that engage with the questions of placemaking and ecology, are relevant aspects for the selection process.

The projects selected for implementation for Færderbiennalen 2024 will receive a fee of 2,000 EUR. Færderbiennalen will facilitate the on-site construction of the installations – the construction budget per installation is a maximum of 10,000 EUR. Selected artists/architects are expected to be on-site for the building period (up to 5 days in July). The construction budget can either be used for freight and remounting of an existing installation, or to cover material and construction costs of new works.
