Julia Stephenson

Julia works as Head of Arts at National Glass Centre at the University of Sunderland where she manages the exhibition and learning and engagement programme.
The recent exhibition programme has included shows ranging from a retrospective of the work of Erwin Eisch to new work in glass by ceramist Magdalene Odundo.
The learning and engagement programme offers opportunities for artists to work within participatory arts projects and for people of all ages to explore the potential of working in glass.
Julia joined National Glass Centre three years ago after working as Assistant Director of mima (Middlesbrough Institute of Modern Art).
