"BI GREEN" Make the Difference! First Biennial exhibition on recycling, reuse and sustainability.
"BI GREEN" is the first Biennial exhibition of contemporary art and design in Sardinia on the theme of recycling, reuse and sustainability.
"BI GREEN" aims to raise awareness of the environment, health and energy conservation through the collective exhibition of works of art and eco-design, made entirely or in part with reuse materials, that represent an original and creative proposal.
The Biennial is an important part of a larger project called "ATLANTIDE", promoted by the Cooperative Lariso and financed by the CON IL SUD Foundation through the "Environment Call for Applications 2012 - Toward Zero Waste". In a world saturated with products, this collective exhibition aims to be an opportunity to show that it is possible to regenerate what is there, prolong the life of what seemed to have ended its life and economic cycle, rebelling against the logic of the use and throws. An opportunity to promote old and new craftsmanship.

Bi Green will have a full calendar of events with guests, moments of study, debates, shows and educational workshops for children and adults. The Biennale also boasts an impressive venue, the premises of the Artillery in Nuoro, opened extraordinarily before 'now only on the occasion of the "FAI 2013 Spring Day".
