2020 NCECA International Residency Partner!

c.r.e.t.a. rome is honored to have been chosen for the 2020 NCECA International Residency Partner Program

DEADLINE: February 19, 2020 


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.

Consideration for NCECA International Residency opportunities is open to all current NCECA members. For more info see:

Projected comprehensive costs of a 5-week residency at CRETA Rome is $3,845.00 USD. Airfare and food are NOT included in projected costs. CRETA Rome will provide up to $1,795.00 in-kind support and NCECA has budgeted $3750.00; the selected artist is responsible for costs beyond the budgeted amount; Studio fees, services, firing fees, miscellaneous expenses. This cost is only an estimate and could change depending on varying factors such as material/firing usage, food consumption, and travel distance.  In-kind support provided by residency is for specified items and amounts. 

The recipient of this opportunity is responsible for making arrangements and paying for their travel. A portion of the NCECA funds up to $750 may be applied to travel costs prior to the residency. Remaining NCECA award funds must be applied to satisfy expenses incurred through the residency before any additional amounts are applied to remaining travel costs.

CRETA Rome asks that one piece of work created during the residency be donated to their collection.
