Prague Quadrennial of Performance Design and Space is the largest international exhibition and festival event dedicated to scenography, performance design and architecture. Since 1967 PQ has been an exchange, networking and educational platform exploring the best works in scenography and design for performance through exhibitions, festivals, workshops, performances, symposia, educational events and residencies. PQ brings together professionals, students and the general public from over 70 countries and regions with an attendance of over 180 000 audience members and visitors.

PQ shares the large world wide performance design platform and network of young designers and professionals. The Prague Quadrennial 2019 will utilize the Prague Industrial Grounds, a site layered with cultural history, having been a source of national pride at the 1981 Great Exposition, a holding depot for Nazi concentration camps, home of many Communist Government celebrations, and now an architectural graveyard.
