NCECA INTERNATIONAL RESIDENCY PARTNER PROGRAMS
DEADLINE: February 5, 2014
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.
In 2014, NCECA will support two International Residencies at the following centers:
The Banff Centre, Banff, Canada
European Ceramic Work Centre, ‘s-Hertogenbosch, The Netherlands
