The V URBAN REGENERATION FORUM – BIA 2022 has launched the IV BIA SKETCH contest entitled:
Invisible cities: Inhabit – Habitat – Inhabitant
The aim is for citizens of any age to use their sketches and drawing to capture their interpretation of their surroundings as an inhabitant of a territory, a city, or a rural or urban environment. That city as a living space in sight and made up of human beings.
The city as the sum of the lives of its inhabitants, as the sum of personal invisible cities.
Scope of the contest: Bilbao/Bizkaia
Anybody wishing to use this medium to express their vision of the subject of the contest may enter.
Neither the organiser’s employees nor of its marketing and/or promotion suppliers may take part in this contest or win a prize.
