The Theme: Material World

NCECA seeks a diverse group of presenters that will appeal to conference attendees involved in K-12 education.

Students (Undergraduate, Post-Bac, Graduate), Studio Artists, Educators (K-12, Community College, University), Gallerists, Curators, etc. are all encouraged to apply!
PURPOSE AND FORMAT OF PRESENTATIONS

The presentation format is open to the presenter’s discretion (i.e. lecture, discussion, short demonstration etc.), and should fit within a 30, 60 or 90-minute time slot. Proposed topics and discussions should utilize the full time requested.
The K12 room will be have a laptop, LCD projector and screen.
In addition to lecture, panel and discussion-based presentation formats, hands-on demonstrations and practice may be possible to accommodate. The room will not be outfitted with ceramics equipment or materials unless arranged for by the presenter.
Everyone is eligible EXCEPT for those who participated in the program in Houston, Texas during NCECA 2013. Participation is generally limited to only one presentation.
Accepted presenters are eligible to receive a complimentary conference pass provided they are or become NCECA members at the time of acceptance. No other compensation is available for K12 presenters.

Presenters should prepare a thorough description of what the presentation entails (200 to 400 words) that includes the names of all presenters, the format for the presentation and a very brief and thought-provoking description of 50 words for possible use in the Conference Program Guide. Topics should be developed to appeal to K-12 educators in private schools, public schools, community centers, home school, and/or other educational frameworks.

Each conference I attend mobilizes, inspires, and stimulates me to play in clay. I love the people. It's one of the few places I feel I belong. I feel at home at each conference. Keep up the good work.
