2017 NCECA Conference: Portland, Oregon: March 22-25, 2017
NCECAâ€™s 51stÂ AnnualÂ Conference :Â Future Flux,Â Portland, Oregon March 22-25, 2017.Â As journeyâ€™s end for Lewis and Clark in the early 19thÂ century,Â expeditionÂ andÂ discoveryÂ have framed our imagination of the Pacific Northwest. As we pass beyond NCECAâ€™s first fifty years, the interconnection of mind, materials, and transformation at the heart of ceramic process, art and education can serve as trail heads to our future. Our creative workÂ in the 21stÂ centuryÂ increasingly engages with hybrid practices, issues of diversity, notions of community and dynamic change.Â How will more sustainable models of ceramic art and education continue to evolve? What are the essential competencies and capacities for ceramic artists and educators today and for the future? How can we continue to draw from richÂ historic traditions while reinvigorating theirÂ relevance in rapidly changing global societies?Â Portland, Oregon, a city of rivers, makers, and entrepreneurs is an ideal vantage point from which to investigate these questions and others. Join us atÂ Future FluxÂ and help transport us to the ways that ceramic art and education will continue to matter.
