Participants are required to send their proposals in the four mentioned categories by 1st May 2015. 15 artists will be selected to create cultural spaces to explore the changing cultural landscape of Karachi within the context of the evolving visual culture of the city. These cultural spaces will be in the form of interactive cubic structures that will be displayed outdoors to create a park.
15 shortlisted artists will display their work in a space where visitors of all ages can learn about their dynamic city, along with some dynamic performances revolving around Karachi’s history, culture and art.
