"Takhayal Ramallah" is a collaborative project between UR°BANA and Sakiya, with the support of the Heinrich-Böll-Stiftung - Palestine and Jordan
Deadline for submission of ideas: 12 August 2019
Please submit your application using the form under this link (click here).
We invite scholars, artists, urbanists and interested persons regardless of background or discipline to submit an abstract of up to 250-words, and an image if needed, describing their idea for a contribution to this compendium, Takhayal.
We encourage ideas that seek to work within existing realities and systems to forge different urban realities, as well as those that are futuristic, speculative and wildly imaginative towards a radical reconfiguration of space. It is up to you to hypothesise the conditions, events and components with which your scenario takes place.
We are particularly interested in contributions that combine text and visuals that would transmit the idea beyond literacy and professional barriers; be those sketches, images, cartoons, collages or any other form.
Selection decisions will be announced by 15 August 2019.
Selected ideas are requested to submit their full contribution of 1,200 – 2,000 word essays and the associated visuals by 15 September 2019. Within the following two weeks contributors will receive reviews, and in their turn, they will have two weeks to finalize their contributions for publication.
Contributors will be awarded a remuneration of ILS 1,600.
The selected works will be published in an online E-publication on 31 October 2019.
