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. NCECA has participated in programs in Africa, Asia, Australia, Canada, Europe and South America. Global interface will continue to play an important role in NCECA’s efforts to sustain and advance a vibrant ceramic art and education community.

The award amount available for 2019 will be $3750.00 per residency. Partnering residency centers are expected to support the artists through in-kind and/ or monetary support subject to their available resources. Prior to submitting an application, artists should visit and review the residency websites below to learn about each program’s costs, facilities, unique experiences, and application requirements.
