The next station of Triple Parade 2015, will move the content to Kuopio in Finland at August, and Antwerp in Belgium at late of this year. A great deal of extraordinary togetherness has occurred on the Triple Parade project, which is wholly devoted to an important group of people who engage with contemporary culture and jewellery in a fascinating way. We hope you will agree and be pleasantly surprised by the new format.
