Glass Nexus Forum 2019

North Lands Creative in Lybster is Europe’s leading educational glass facilities and one of the world’s most prestigious centres for the study and development of glass as an art form, providing excellent facilities, opportunities and inspiration to artists working with glass from all over the world.

NLC Forum began in 1995 where our co-founder 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 has evolved into a discussion and platform event attended by artists, curators and creative professionals form 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.

This year we are extending the event by holding a Highland Fling Festival that will run alongside the Forum.

Heartened by the great energy summoned at the 2018 Glass Nexus Forum, North Lands Creative will continue our investigation into how to strengthen links internationally in the glass community. We hope this monster meeting of creative forces and minds will spark ideas, animate discussions and ignite partnerships.

Between speakers, sponsor-reserved tickets, and pre-sale registrants there are many seats taken already so we encourage you not to leave your purchase until the last minute because we are cautiously, optimistically, expecting to sell out! Full speaker line up and schedule will be launched on 16th May 2019.
