Update: July 2018
The open call for submissions ended on May 31, but we are keeping this open for anyone interested in sharing their visions here.
In a moment of intense and urgent humanitarian crisis at the border, we are focused what we can do next to help organizations working directly with migrants and refugees. Meanwhile, we are still interested in your ideas, please continue to share them with us. Below is the original Open Call Announcement for Phase Two which ran January - May 31, 2018.
REQUEST FOR DESIGNS
::: OTHER BORDER WALL PROJECT: HOW TO BUILD A NON-WALL :::
Through May 31, 2018*
This Request For Designs seeks visions for the border between Mexico and the United States as a site of connection, creativity, and humanitarian support. Submit your original designs that consider how to build a non-wall, signaling possibilities for what the future of walls, and borders, can become. With this RFD, we hope to activate the public imagination and receive an abundance of submissions that work together to dismantle the view of the border as a fortified, insurmountable, and destructive barrier. All entries will become part of an online archive. Certain entries will be exhibited or published as detailed below.
