CoLab Conference


With less than 12 months to go NZSAG and Ausglass are delighted to launch The CoLab conference with the release of our vibrant logo and a preview of exciting activities.


The CoLab will explore in theory and in practice, the multifaceted nature of collaboration.
When: 15-17 February 2019
Where: Whanganui, New Zealand


The three-day program will comprise lectures, lecture-demonstrations, workshops, panel discussions, a delegate’s project and numerous social events.

Various concurrent exhibitions will complement the conference theme and showcase the art work of invited international artists, NZSAG and Ausglass members.

Workshops and activities are also scheduled in the days immediately before and after the conference.


Leading contemporary national and international artists such as Katharine Coleman, Laura Donefer and Ben Young are contributing, amongst others soon to be announced. These artists have been selected as their practices demonstrate collaboration and innovation with glass. They will share with us a cross-pollination of ideas, methodologies and cultural approaches to glass.
