1000 MILES APART
A LITTLE HISTORY
The Red Deer College Ceramics Program is hosting the annual 1000 Miles Apart conference October 1st, 2nd and 3rd, 2010. This conference was first organized in 1989 by faculty and students from the University of Manitoba, Winnipeg and Red Deer College, Alberta. The distance between the institutions was the origin of the name 1000 Miles Apart. Participating institutions later included the University of Regina and Alberta College of Art + Design. Each year the conference is organized collectively and rotates to a new host institution for that year. It provides an excellent opportunity for students and faculty to meet and network, and creates a valuable forum to develop and strengthen the ceramics community in Western Canada. Members of the public, along with University of Regina, Red Deer College, and University of Manitoba, students and faculty from nearby Ceramics Programs are also invited to attend the conference events.
