RECIPROCITY design Liege is an initiative of the Province of Liege and the Provincial Centre for Arts and Crafts of Liege (Office Provincial des Métiers d’Art de Liege – OPMA). Formerly called the International Design Biennial of Liege, which started in 2002, the first edition of RECIPROCITY design liège took place from 4 – 28 October 2012 and presented 25 exhibitions, a series of lectures, debates and a range of other activities, attracting more than 40,000 participants (see full programme on www.designliege.be). Now a triennial, the next edition will be held from 1 October – 1 November 2015, with Wallonie Design in charge of general management and art direction entrusted to Giovanna Massoni.
Committed to its core principles, ‘reciprocity’ and design for social innovation are still the main threads of RECIPROCITY 2015. As a laboratory and showcase of ‘best practices’, RECIPROCITY brings together numerous local, cross-border (Euregio Meuse-Rhine) and international actors in order to generate debate among the public, professionals, and media on the role played by design today. In the framework of RECIPROCITY design liège 2015, an international call for entries is addressed to schools, students & designers (product design, graphic design, interior architecture, service design, design for social innovation).
The subject is not Food Design but rather Design for Food, in line with the theme of the EXPO Milano 2015 in Milan: Feed the Planet. Energy for Life.
