Eco Threads and BIEN


Incorporating textile art, industrial design, and landscape art, BIEN presents biennial exhibitions and accompanying activities that reflect on heritage, conservation, and sustainability. It connects two neighbouring regions, Gorizia and Gorenjska, more specifically Nova Gorica and Kranj, as it was written for Kranj's bid to be the European Capital of Culture.

The festival draws on the biological, geological, and archaeological features of the area, as well as its environment, identities, industrial culture, and traditional knowledge, to form new, contemporary expressions. It explores textile culture and art through exhibitions, workshops, and a professional line-up, connecting different cities and regions.
