Apply for The Venice Glass Week

The application process is open for the eighth edition of The Venice Glass Week, which will take place around Venice, Mestre and Murano in Italy from 14 to 22 September 2024.

Applications are invited from any organisation, institution, company or individual, from Italy or abroad, who would like to propose an event or project relating to artistic glass. Candidates can propose to organise their own independent event or project as part of the festival – including exhibitions, installations, conferences, workshops, guided tours, family activities and more – or they can apply to exhibit within The Venice Glass Week HUB or The Venice Glass Week HUB Under35 (for artists aged 35 or under).

The two HUBs are hosted by the Istituto Veneto di Scienze, Lettere ed Arti in Palazzo Loredan, located in Campo Stefano, in the heart of Venice.

The Venice Glass Week HUB is situated in the magnificent first floor galleries and will feature a series of installations of glass artworks by artists and designers aged 36 and over.

The Venice Glass Week HUB Under35 is situated in the ground floor galleries of Palazzo Loredan and will host a series of glass artworks by artists and designers aged 18-35.

All exhibitors within the HUB Under35 will be considered for the Autonoma Residency Prize, which will enable the winner to undertake a two-month artistic residency at Pilchuck Glass School in Seattle, US, in 2025.

Participation in the festival is free, but participants are responsible for all costs relating to the planning and realisation of their individual events and projects (eg transportation and installation of artworks, insurance, hire of venue if relevant).

HUB exhibitors are responsible for all costs relating to the production of their works, transportation to and from the venue, installation and de-installation, plus insurance of their works while in transit and on-site.

Read the conditions of entry via this link before applying using the online application form, which will be evaluated by the festival’s Curatorial Committee.

The deadline for applications is Monday 8 April 2024.

The Venice Glass Week was established in 2017 to celebrate and promote the art of glass. The festival is promoted by Comune di Venezia and organised by Fondazione Musei Civici di Venezia, LE STANZE DEL VETRO – Fondazione Giorgio Cini, Istituto Veneto di Scienze, Lettere ed Arti and Consorzio Promovetro Murano.
