Activities and projects
We want to create a destination with different ACTIVITIES, workshops and D.I.Y., seminars and lectures, innovative activites focusing on colour, design and technology. The centre will also accommodate different DEVELOPMENT PROJECTS, collaboration with colleges, universities and a wide range of companies. This center will promote sustainability and develop new technical solutions.
Rydal is situated on the banks of the river Viskan, North of the town called Kinna. Due to the well-preserved remains of an old industrial Community, Rydal is of national interest. The factory, alongside with several other buildings in the village, have been declared historical monuments. Here you can find Rydals museum that offer a wide range of activities.
