Artist Opportunities

Be part of the programme

The International Festival of Glass not only creates its own events, but also works with many partner organisations and individuals to include independent events as part of the programme. Do you have an idea for an exhibition or event which you would like to host during the next IFG? Email the team at info@ifg.org.uk outlining your proposal and we will get in touch.

The European Glass Experience

The International Festival of Glass is proud to be an associated partner of EGE - European Glass Experience.

The EGE project will be realised through three travelling exhibitions of 40 selected glass artworks and 80 projects for glass artworks (sketches/rendering). These exhibitions will take place at The Finnish Glass Museum in Riihimaki (Finland), in March 2014; GlassMuseum in La Granja (Spain), in Summer 2014 and the Murano Glass Museum (Italy), in Spring 2015. The best 20 sketches will be realised by glassmakers in Murano and exhibited in Venice during the last project exhibition.

The first of the exhibitions is now taking place in Finland and more information can be found in the brochure and on the EGE website.
