Glass Nexus Forum

August 4 - August 5

£190 – £250

The Glass Nexus Forum at North Lands Creative provides a unique opportunity to pool artists, audiences, and stakeholders with academic researchers, collectors and curators on an International scale. Speakers from more than 10 countries are expected to participate in the event at the Lybster campus from the 4th– 5th August 2018.

Whether you’re an individual artist or managing a studio, an arts freelancer or working in a funded arts organisation, this year’s forum is about your concerns and our community. The forum topic will research and investigate the interrelation of three themes; the exploration within the field of curation and glass making; the social emotional learning through the glass art experience and intangible culture, how the art of glass making can be appropriated, developed and sustained. In the presence of renowned glass artist Professor Michael Rogers, North Lands Creative board member and lecturer at the School for American Crafts at Rochester Institute of Technology who has kindly accepted the invitation to be the Master of Ceremony for the Forum. 

It’s time for hard truths, some imaginative thinking but most of all, about creating an intimate and supportive platform, where despite and because of our varied interests and experiences, we can come together.

Glass Forum is kindly sponsored by Corning Incorporated and Creative Scotland.
