The ministry of culture is seeking designers, artists and craftspeople to showcase their work in a pop-up store in Dudelange this autumn.
The principle behind the Pop-Up Store in the Galerie Gaasch is simple – the ministry of culture wants to help promote young and professional designers and creative, to allow the scene here in Luxembourg to develop.
Each designer chosen for the project will be given a number of consecutive days in the pop-up store to showcase, and sell, their work. A 65 square metre space will be allocated and the successful candidates can also set up a small workshop at the back of the gallery. But they must organize their own opening event, set up their own stands and man the space during the store’s opening hours between 1 and 7 p.m. from Wednesday to Sunday.
But the project is much more than just a retail outlet; the ministry hopes it will become a focal point of exchange and creative collaboration.
Applications, including a CV and a portfolio as well as a list of available dates in October November and December can be submitted to the ministry of culture’s Service d’animation culturelle régionale at 4, bd Roosevelt, L-2450 Luxembourg before September 11. Designers, artists and craftspeople of Luxembourg nationality or with a permanent residency in the Grand Duchy are all eligible. Candidates can visit the space at 5, rue du Commerce in Dudelange, on August 29 from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. and on September 4 from 3.30 to 6.30 p.m.
