Imagining Sustainable Glass Network Europe (ISGNE) is a project led by North Lands Creative partnering with Berlin Glas Germany, Ltd. Stikla Maja Latvia and National College of Art and Design Ireland.

ISGNE will lead to the development of supports for artists, designers, curators and cultural workers working in the field of glass in the UK and across Europe through the provision of mobility visits, residencies, exhibitions, professional transnational classes and audience development initiatives such as artist-led community workshops, symposiums and an annual forum.

The ISGNE project will run over four years from 2018 until May 2022 and will also look to make the medium of glass more accessible to a non-arts audience, bringing to the fore a wider public debate on the sustainability of contemporary glass by a programme of ambitious and unique experiences.

ISGNE will include:
  • Exhibitions
  • Festivals
  • Talks
  • Workshops
