A new centre for contemporary art, music, science and technology has been established on the site of the former Herzig textile factory in Jablonec nad Nisou, where the GB beads company is based. The Nisa Factory is a meeting place for people, a space for sharing opinions and experiences and conducting an open dialogue. The pride of the whole complex is the beautiful former spinning mill, which has been converted into a gallery space. During the extensive renovation, the original beams supporting the ceiling were uncovered - the longest of which measures an impressive 18 metres.
Nisa Factory is located in the beautiful countryside at the foot of the Jizera Mountains, less than six kilometres from the mountain village of Bedřichov and the Jizera Highway, popular with skiers. The Bílá Nisa River, which rises in the nearby Klikvová louka nature reserve, flows through the factory premises. The functioning of the factory has always been closely linked to the wild nature around it. The water stream of the Bílá Nisa initially served as the driving force for the factory's operation. Nowadays, it is also a symbol that commemorates the history and tradition of glassmaking.
The Nisa Factory offers locals and tourists, individuals and families not only a new gallery space, but also creative workshops, a museum of Jablonec bead and jewellery production, and excursions to the various G&B Beads operations, including a shop with a wide range of glass pressed, cut, fire-polished, winding beads and jewellery from its own production.
With the opening of the Big Bead exhibition on 18 March 2022, the largest modern art gallery to date in North Bohemia will open on 600 m².
