The Fiskars Village Art & Design Biennale addresses topical issues in contemporary art, design and architecture, making room for something new and surprising. Its series of exhibitions invites artists, designers, architects, the public and the regional community to participate and encourages open questions. Organized for the second time next summer, the Fiskars Village Art & Design Biennale is looking for new ideas and experiences at the ever-redefining intersections of art and design. The historic ironworks environment is a perfect local tourist destination this summer, too.
