        • Description
        • Thank you for you interest in participating in DesCours 2009, the third year of this annual event being held in New Orleans, December 7 -13. DesCours is a seven-day, contemporary architecture and art event that looks towards the future in showcasing experimental, cutting edge new media and interactive installations while embracing New Orleans rich cultural heritage. During DesCours, internationally recognized architects, designers and artists transform unique, hidden spaces within the French Quarter and Central Business District into destination places for visitors and locals alike.

          There are a total of 14 artists and architects (individuals and teams) that will be selected through invitation and this proposal process to participate by creating installations for French Quarter courtyards, downtown building lobbies, rooftops, walkways and other 'hidden' New Orleans spaces. Overall, we are seeking installations that react and respond both to the historic nature of the sites, and to the public audience that views them.

          You can view the full RFP here: http://descours.us/2009_Architects+Artists_RFP.pdf

          All proposals should be submitted electronically to descours@aianeworleans.org by July 8, 2009 (5:00 PM CST). Questions about the RFP may also be emailed to the same address.
