PQ > For professionals and students

Use the backdrop of the Prague Quadrennial to participate in hundred of talks, discussions, and networking opportunities, thus allowing you to meet thousands of artists and art professionals from over 70 countries!

Check the program overview on the visitor’s page.

Do not miss the extensive series of discussions, presentations, symposia, talks, etc., covering these major performance design disciplines: sound, lighting, costume design, and scenography with practitioners such as Es Devlin, Jan Pappelbaum, Malgorzata Szczesniak, and Mark Friedberg, as well as Romeo Castellucci (Societas Raffaelo Sanzio), Kirsten Dehlholm (Hotel Pro Forma), and Guy Coolen (Muziektheater Transparant).  More about the Talks.

If you would like to present your work, we can include your portfolio in the Portfolio library. Bring (or send) your paper portfolios to be included in the PQ Portfolio Library – a lounge space with free access to the portfolios and other publications in the Veletrzni Palace-National Gallery.

If you would like to exhibit, contact the curator of your country or region (find the list of exhibiting countries and regions here) as we do not accept applications from individual artists. Neither do we accept applications from theatre companies to present performances at the PQ. Live programs (including performances) are by invitation only, as they are curated by the Prague Quadrennial team.
