  • Glass Nexus Forum – POSTPONED

    We have been advised that social gatherings are likely to be restricted for sometime and social distancing measures unlikely to change soon. We would ask at this difficult time for people who have already booked a forum ticket to consider donating their payment to North Lands Creative or agree to their ticket being carried forward to next year. This will help us pay our freelance artists, technicians and contractors who will be adversely affected by our forum this year. Please contact if you have any enquiries.

    • Glass Nexus Forum 2021 18-22 August 2021

    We are constantly reviewing the situation in order to safeguard our participants, audiences, and staff. We face an unprecedented situation that is constantly evolving and we will be communicating any changes to arrangements via email, on social media and on our website as they occur. Thank you for your understanding.
