ARTIST OPPORTUNITIES AND RESIDENCIES
NCECA INTERNATIONAL RESIDENCY PARTNER PROGRAMS
The purpose of NCECA is to promote and improve the ceramic arts through education, research and creative practice. One of the many ways that NCECA supports its members is by providing opportunities to engage in international programs. Intercultural exchange of ideas and methods is critical to evolution of individual artists who through their immersion and experimentation, absorb and sometimes transform influences of other artists and their cultures. Since launching this initiative, NCECA has participated in programs in Africa, Asia, Australia and Europe. NCECA is committed to the idea that global interface will continue to play an important role in our organization’s efforts to sustain and advance a vibrant ceramic art and education community.
Consideration for NCECA International Residency opportunities is open all NCECA members.

Co-founded by Paolo Porelli and Lori-Ann Touchette, the non-profit organization ‘c.r.e.t.a. rome’ offers an international self-funded residency program in Rome, Italy. The Italian word for clay seemed perfect to express our commitment to creating an international reference point for ceramics and the arts in the eternal city of Rome. Moreover, taken as an acronym, it spells out our main activities: ceramics, residencies, exhibitions, teaching and the arts. We are located in the mid 16th-century Palazzo Delfini in the historical center of Rome, just blocks from the Capitoline Hill on one side and the Pantheon on the other.
We offer artist residencies for ceramic artists, periods of 4, 5, 9 or 10 weeks. For 2016, the residency periods are:
SPRING 2016 residency periods: deadline 15 September 2015

The residency fee covers a semi-private equipped studio, shared housing (private room) in the historical center of Rome, and technical assistance in procuring materials, firings, etc., advice on museums, galleries and sites in Rome and beyond. We also offer a residency in the countyside near Bracciano, with private accommodation in a 1-bedroom house with a garden and a private studio. This option is particularly attractive for collaborative projects and/or ceramic artists who work with reduction firing or those who would like tobring their spouse/partner and/or children.
Artists have the opportunity to focus on their art, whether it be creating a new body of work, expanding a well-established oeuvre or allowing themselves to draw inspiration from their surroundings and the centuries of culture that define the eternal city. In addition, they will have access to the wealth of galleries and exhibitions in Rome and beyond. Artists are encouraged to submit a proposal for a final exhibition to display the work created during the residency period.
The Art Department specifically aims to award a residency to one individual from each of the four categories: ceramics, photography, printmaking and social justice. Fostering creative and artistic excellence, the residency also plays an important role in advancing the visual arts on the Emmanuel campus, providing an important educational program on contemporary art accessible to students, staff and faculty.
Duration: 8 weeks; June through August

Playa, in south central Oregon, is a retreat for creative individuals who are committed and passionate about their work and who will benefit from time spent in a remote location. Playa offers seclusion and quiet in a natural environment and the opportunity for interaction, if desired, with a cohort of residents and the local rural community. A residency provides the time and space to create substantive work or to research and reflect upon one’s creative or scientific processes. Away from the urgencies of daily life, residents can focus on their projects, immerse in a desert landscape of basin and rangeland, and find inspiration through self-directed inquiry.
Founded in 2009 and based in Puebla and Oaxaca, southern Mexico, Arquetopia is an award-winning, Mexican official nonprofit foundation promoting Development, social transformation and productivity through artistic, cultural, and educational programs. The core of the Foundation is Sustainable Development through four principles embodied in all of Arquetopia’s programs and activities: social awareness, shared responsibility, innovation, and local networks development. Arquetopia is experienced in negotiation and reinvestment of resources for local arts development in Mexico with the following features: social scope; quality; synergy; collaboration; innovation; viability; reciprocity; and respect for local knowledge.
Arquetopia has since grown to include the premier artist residency program in Mexico and Latin America, with extensive collaborative networks in Puebla and Oaxaca and a satellite office in New York City. Our resident artists have come from dozens of countries on six continents, and we ware proud that many of them have returned multiples times. In contrast to vacation rentals, B&B’s, and sublets advertised part-time as quasi art centers, both Arquetopia and Arquetopia Oaxaca have always been professional spaces exclusively for artists and include structured programs; a network of collaborative workspaces, institutions, and studios; and project support.
