Join the NCECA and Boston Valley at Future Flux and help transport us to the ways that ceramic art and education will continue to matter. As journey’s end for Lewis and Clark in the early 19th century, expedition and discovery have framed our imagination of the Pacific Northwest. As we pass beyond NCECA’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 work in the 21st century increasingly engages with hybrid practices, issues of diversity, notions of community and dynamic change. Portland, Oregon, a city of rivers, makers, and entrepreneurs is an ideal vantage point from which to investigate questions and others.
John Krouse, Boston Valley’s President, will be participating in a panel on Thursday March 23 called: Outside Onward into the Future with Dr. Carty and Brad Taylor.
