North Lands Creative Forum began when our co-founded and artistic director Dan Klein wanted to create an intimate gathering for the glass community to come together and showcase the work of emerging and innovative practice in the field of glass. Over the years, the forum was evolved into a discussion and platform event attended by artists, curators and creative professionals from all over the world. The event has grown into one of the essential gatherings for the glass community and has been listed as one of the most important social events in the glass calendar year.
