Prague Quadrennial 2019 was held last summer, and the presenters had the fortunate experience of attending exhibits, workshops, and studios over 11 days in Prague, CZ.   The presenters are graduate students from Texas State University who represent 2 different design disciplines, giving them each a unique perspective on their experiences at the showcase.  They will review the highlights of the work they saw, as well share their discoveries of how design is evolving on a global scale. PQ’s mission is to act as “a global catalyst of creative progress by encouraging experimentation, networking, innovation, and future collaborations.”  The presenters left PQ with a desire to continue an international dialogue and share their discoveries with other students and theatre professionals in our country who were not able to attend. PQ featured the work of 800 artists representing 79 countries in a curated exhibit.  Programming included lectures from leading international practitioners as well as in-depth studio workshops and experimental technology as scenography. These lectures explored questions such as, “What is scenography?” “How is the field changing?” “What is the role of the scenographer in creating dynamic performance design?” “How do we collaborate with one another?”  We are in the midst of an enormous change in practices both in our country and abroad.  This workshop addresses the changes that are occurring on a national and international stage.
