Public Lecture Series: 21 Years of National Glass Centre

Thursday 13 June, 19:30 – 21:00

To celebrate 21 years since National Glass Centre opened to the public in Sunderland, we have gathered a panel of curators, academics and artists to reflect on the work of the centre, its cultural, educational and social impact to date and to discuss the centre’s future potential.

We welcome everyone to join us as we mark this great milestone with this lecture, alongside other events taking place as part of the NGC21 celebrations.

Chairing the discussion will be Professor Kevin Petrie, Head of School of Art and Design at University of Sunderland

Panellists are:

Emma Woffenfen – highly acclaimed mixed media sculptor who has trained extensively in glass making techniques

Julia Stephenson – Head of Arts at National Glass Centre and curator of the NGC21 exhibition

Dr Jeffrey Sarmiento – Associate Professor at University of Sunderland

Dr Erin Dickson – Artist

Tickets for this event are free. If you would like to make a donation to support National Glass Centre and other Sunderland Culture events and venues within the city, you can donate online or in person on the night.

This event will take place in The Glass Yard restaurant at the National Glass Centre. Registration from 7.10pm
