Mini launches giant design bursary for Body & Soul Festival 2019

Mini Ireland and Body & Soul Music and Arts Festival are on the search for a creative collaborator to design a stage installation space exclusively for Mini at this year’s festival.

With a giant Mini bursary prize of €10,000, the open competition pays tribute to the original Mini, launched 60 years ago in 1959 and renowned for its original and unconventional approach to design.

Austin Behan, General Manager for Mini Ireland said: “The space should blend in harmoniously with the Body & Soul Festival theme, Rituals, and take design cues from Mini’s brand history and heritage. By collaborating with Body & Soul Festival we have an opportunity to showcase in Ireland how Mini is more than just a car brand but a leader in creating solutions for future urban living spaces, through Mini Living, Urban X and A/D/O.”
