National Glass Centre at the University of Sunderland reopens its doors on 29 June 2013, following an ambitious £2.25 million redevelopment programme.
National Glass Centre at the University of Sunderland is one of the UKs leading institutions for glass, celebrating Sunderland’s unique glass-making heritage, presenting a rich temporary exhibition programme and facilitating international level research in new approaches to glass and ceramics. This large scale redevelopment project will allow the Centre to fulfil its potential as a cultural venue of international standing.
The National Glass Centre at the University of Sunderland has successfully attracted £750,000 from the Arts Council England’s Large Capital Programme, £337,000 from the Heritage Lottery Fund (HLF), £100,000 from the Sir James Knott Trust and £50,000 from the Foyle Foundation. This, coupled with the £975,000 investment from the University of Sunderland, illustrates a significant commitment to the development of the arts in the City.
The investment will contribute toward major improvements to the Centre’s gallery and learning spaces, doubling the exhibition capacity, upgrading and modernising the gallery spaces, education and resource rooms and enabling the Centre to better meet the needs of the visitor, schools and groups.
My practice is interdisciplinary combining drawing, sculpture and film.
