NCECA INTERNATIONAL RESIDENCY PARTNER PROGRAMS
DEADLINE: February 1, 2013
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 2013, NCECA will support three International Residencies at the following centers:
Curaumilla Art Center, Santiago, Chile
International Ceramic Studio, Kecskemet, Hungary
Benyamini Contemporary Ceramics Center, Tel Aviv, Israel
NCECA International Residency Awards support projects that are approximately one month in duration, to occur between March 2013 and March 2014. Residency dates vary; check details below.
