2015 NCECA International Residency Award Call for Artists
c.r.e.t.a. rome is offering a 6-week residency to the selected ceramic artist between April 2015 and March 2016. The purpose of NCECA is to promote and improve the ceramic arts through education, research and creative practice.
Deadline: 3 Feb 2015
Consideration for NCECA International Residency opportunities is open to all NCECA members.
Approximate total cost for a six-week residency is $3750.00. c.r.e.t.a. rome will provide up to $1500 in-kind support and NCECA has budgeted $3750.00; the selected artist is responsible for costs beyond the budgeted amount; materials, firing fees, miscellaneous expenses.
c.r.e.t.a. rome is honored to have been chosen for the 2015 NCECA International Residency Partner Programs. 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, 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 Italian word for clay “creta” seemed perfect to express our commitment to creating an international reference point for ceramics and the arts in the eternal city of Rome. The cultural association promotes the ceramic arts, but also the visual, humanistic, musical and culinary arts through events, cultural ‘happenings’, demonstrations, lectures, seminars, courses and didactic visits, workshops, exhibitions and artist residencies.
We are located in the mid 16th-century Palazzo Delfini in the historical center of Rome, just blocks from the Capitoline Hill on one side and the Jewish quarter on the other. The area is filled with art galleries, artist ateliers, restaurants and wine bars.
