67 proposals for the Triennale 2022 Independent Projects
Although the capital city attracts the greatest preference for the venue location, the wider territory of the Lisbon Metropolitan Area is on this call’s map through projects that find their space in Vila Franca de Xira, Almada, Barreiro and Palmela. 50 proposals have been directed to the Palácio Sinel de Cordes, but many other venues of varied typology, mostly public spaces, were appointed in the applications. It is also noteworthy that 37 come from collectives, 11 are individual, 8 form studios and 11 from institutions or publishing houses. We are also very pleased to note the healthy gender parity, with a slight female advantage in terms of leader and participant figures.

A maximum of 12 proposals will be selected by a jury consisting of Cristina Veríssimo and Diogo Burnay, (Chief Curators of the Triennale 2022), José Mateus (Chairman of the Triennale), Filipa Tomaz (Coordinator of the Educational Service) and Tiago Pombal (Coordinator of Independent Projects).
Independent Projects, as self-funded public events, are a critical element of the Triennale that embody, this time, the central programming to reveal a broader creative and cultural background: stimulating and questioning reflection about the theme of the 6th edition of the international forum taking place between September 29 and December 5, 2022.
