In Trbovlje, a new concept has arisen under the name Trbovlje – new media town (TNM), which combines new media artists not only from Slovenia but also from abroad. The main project of the TNM is an international new media festival Speculum Artium with over 100 participating authors from around the world over the past five years. The V.A.T. (Visual Alternative Trbovlje) operates under TNM; its principal aim is to unite new media artists and producers from the local environment.
