KIBLIX 2021 / Panel Discussion
Sustainable Technologies
Thursday, 6 May 2021, at 6 p.m. CET

We kindly invite you to join us on Thursday, 6 May 2021, at 6 p.m., when the next thematically focused panel discussions of the KIBLIX festival will take place. The conversation will be moderated by Gaja Mežnarić Osole, designer and co-founder of the Trajna collective.  

Guest speakers:
Andrej Koruza, set designer, intermedia artist and designer, Trajna collective
Anamari Hrup and Eva Jera Hanžek, Masters of Painting, Abandoned Plants Sanctuary
Eva Pavlič Seifert and Aljaž Celarc, artistic tandem, PlateauResidue/Mandrova House (Hiša Mandrova)
Goran Vučilovski, director, GNS PLUS 

In a selected group of Slovenian creatives, we will discuss the skills and abilities needed to design long-term projects to transform the relationship between humans and nature. As the work on sustainable development constantly steps down the path into the unknown, together with representatives of a new generation of environmentally sensitive creators, we will present various approaches, processes, and impulses that produce innovative project ideas in the local area. We will get to know the reasons for creating a plastic recycling machine, setting up the Abandoned Plants Sanctuary, the awakening of creative tourism in rural areas, and creating a new production space in an overgrown construction pit.

Technology (téhnē - art, dexterity, skill + logos - word, calculation) is the science of ways of creating, whatever, or a set of such processes from the initial to the final state. (Source: Wiki)

The event will be held in Slovene.
