NCECA 2015, 49th ANNUAL CONFERENCE
MARCH 25-28, 2015 PROVIDENCE RI

Rhode Island Convention Center
One Sabin Street
Providence, Rhode Island 02903

Experiments may take root in obscure places at seemingly inconsequential moments. They become Lively when we learn that the issues and concerns under investigation connect with the minds and imaginations of others. Lively Experiments become richer as different perspectives make contact. NCECA’s annual conference has earned a reputation worldwide as a premiere event for ceramic art drawing thousands each year. Lively Experiments will join ceramic art’s historic engagement with empirical research and discovery to today’s evolving creative commons. Conference programming based at the Rhode Island Convention Center will investigate, celebrate and promote discourse in Lively Experimentation through aesthetics, history, criticism, pedagogy, professional practice, technology and sustainability. Special strands dedicated to K-12 education and student-centered programming will also be incorporated along with opportunities to learn about ceramics study, residency opportunities, services and products in a large Resource Hall.

Artists worldwide view NCECA as an important opportunity to expose their work to passionate and informed audiences. The region-wide array of clay and creativity surrounding the conference will be prodigious in scope, exceptional in quality, and embody diverse conceptual and aesthetic approaches. Extending throughout greater Providence and into Southern New England, Lively Experiments will be a unique opportunity to discover, experience, learn about and collect ceramics.
