Glasslåven Arts Centre

Glasslåven Arts Centre

Residency Glasslåven Arts Centre

Glasslåven Arts Center is located in Gran, Hadeland, Norway, and it opened in April 2016. The preservation of a historical barn from the 1880’s has been renovated and rebuilt with ecological principals. It has become a pilot project in which the sustainability of the area through generations, has inspired forward thinking and co-friendly building techniques. The stable, hayloft and the basement potato storage are replaced with a gallery, production venues, glassblowing studio and regular studios for permanent and temporary tenants. The arts center is a ecofriendly building for high quality and professional art.

Among their residing artists you’ll find two stellars in Norwegian arts & crafts, glass artist Ulla-Mari Brantenberg and jewelry artist Toril Bjorg. Glasslåven is in a country setting and is perfect for quiet reflection. Multiple visual artists, writers and a choreographer/director are among the artists who work at Glasslaven.


Presentation, performance or exhibition of the work is encouraged (and requested for recipients of the grant).
