The SACN is seeking a creative mobile exhibition design to display its large volume of work. As an initial step, the SACN is looking to develop an exhibition to be used at conferences and events to:

  • Educate visitors – the exhibition should craft an experience of the urban landscape as well as the challenges facing residents and local government;
  • Promote SACN’s Work – the exhibition should achieve the above by utilising the SACN’s research/ publications in urban development that have been produced over the past 15 years; and
  • Inform – to showcase progress made in the metropolitan municipalities since the inception of local government.

The purpose of the competition is not only to find a winning proposal for a mobile exhibition, with regards to the above mentioned, but also to encourage youth in the fields of urban development, architecture and social sciences to engage with material that is linked to cities and their lived experiences of the city.
