residency opportunities: NCECA International Residency Partner Programs

DEADLINE: December 17, 2016 

NCECA International Residency Awards support projects that are
approximately one month in duration, to occur between April 2017 and
March 2018.  Residency dates vary; check details below.

  • Celebrating 10 years at Curaumilla Art Center with NCECA Residency

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 2017 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.

Wood……pots..….ideas……bricks.……fire……collaboration.…..inspiration….mountains…..

As technological changes have gradually infiltrated most aspects of
modern life, both for benefit and detriment, some things remain robustly
human and process-based and fast-tracking is counter-productive. In the
world of ceramics, already a very time-centric occupation, wood firing
remains a bastion of thoughtful, concentrated, measured activity.  Go
too quickly in any part of the journey and the results will underwhelm.
Focusing too much on outcome without proper attention to process can
lead to disappointment, if not disaster. Deep learning and satisfaction
are just two of the results of such engagement – not to mention the
comradery, collaborative spirit and decision making which fuel it.

This residency is an opportunity to work alongside other wood and
soda fire enthusiasts; to create, share ideas, techniques and
inspirations, and in turn, be inspired by the stunning surroundings of
the Rocky Mountains which we will take time to discover and explore. We
will fire The Banff Centre’s venerable Noborigama kiln –
designed and built three decades ago -around which a host of memorable
conversations, art work, challenges and celebrations have emerged and
occurred.

The residency is best suited to emerging and established artists with
wood and/or soda firing experience who want to push their work in new
creative directions.

  • Shared studio with 24-hour access 
  • A community of artists working together
