TEXTILEPOP is a collaboration with NRW-Forum Düsseldorf, Hochschule Niederrhein – University of Applied Sciences and European Guests, which shows all of the possible textile competence fields in Design / Engineering / Management with focus on SUSTAINABILITY within four exposition spaces.
In addition TEXTILEPOP tries to sketch and to research innovative tools of education programs for school and applied solutions for the industry in non-hierarchical format: from school to university, to the circular industry management.
The exposition takes place in the week of the Election of European Parliament: 2019!

The expo „TEXTILEPOP - Europeans together in SUSTAINABLE design / engineering / management“, at NRW-Forum, (Düsseldorf 23rd to 27th of May 2019) will frame the exclusive workshops, guided tours and interaction playground for children.

_ Save the future (Fashion Management CSR, Zero waste – outfits, environmental pollution by petroleum, production PRO of jeans, aware of bees)

_ Design is music... Europeans united (outfits for children and textile patterns, synaesthesia)
