Prague Quadrennial 2023

World Class Expo of Design for Performance, Scenography, & Theatre Architecture

Scenic & Costume Designer California State University professor Emily MacDonald will take a group of students this summer to The Prague Quadrennial, also known as the PQ, two-week event taking place every four years since 1967 in Prague, Czech Republic. This model has been evolving. More and more designers now understand PQ as a platform: a continual stream of activities and collaborations happening across the globe with many different partners, creative professionals, artists, researchers, and theorists. Each on-site festival of PQ is now a culmination of the efforts of the preceding 4 years: a celebration and an opportunity for performing arts professionals from around the world to come to one place and share their work, ideas, and thoughts during the quadrennial festival. We work towards making the 2023 edition once again an opportunity for many new and unique shared experiences.
