(r)evolve was the ausglass conference held in Canberra, Australia, 26-29 Janaury 2017.  Ausglass is the principal body promoting contemporary glass in Australia. The conference brought together Australian and international glass artists, educators, collectors, enthusiasts and industry representatives in a program of presentations, demonstrations, workshops and exhibitions that focused on the conference themes: create, sustain and evolve.


This, the 18th Biennial ausglass Conference, was held in Canberra, our beautiful National Capital, 26-29 January 2017**

At this time of year it's deliciously summer in Canberra, with lots of brilliant sunshine, a lovely dry heat and warm balmy nights and, to be truthful, the occasional summer storm.

The conference program was be spread across four venues; Australian National University, School of Art and Design, Glass Workshop, Canberra Glassworks, National Film and Sound Archive of Australia (NFSA) and National Gallery of Australia (NGA).  The first two of these provided us with fantastic glass facilities, where we enjoed demonstrations and lec-mos from leading exponents of contemporary glass. The NFSA is a stunning art deco building with excellent facilities and the ideal location for our lectures and trade exhibition.  NGA is a beautiful setting for.. anything!
