CERAMICOOP – Ceramics and culture creating intercultural friendships and international co-operation.
This project is oriented to use ceramics as a tool for comparing the cultural experiences of the participants and to provide new points of contact and synthesis between different forms of expression. The guiding principles of this mission are:
- The use of some of the ceramics techniques that are characteristic of the region hosting the project, Faenza;
- A reference to strictly contemporary forms of artistic expression.
The project is a collection of workshop activities, guided tours, and moments of sharing and reciprocal knowledge through the medium of ceramics.
Practical objects and sculptures will be created in dialogue with and under the supervision of prestigious master ceramists from Faenza who will guide the participants in the technical production of their works.
The ultimate practical objective will be the staging of an exhibition that consists of all the works produced by the participants during their week of residence in Faenza.
The European Route of Ceramics Association is lead partner of the project; the other partners are the Saules Skola Support Society (Latvia); the Benyamini Contemporary Ceramics Center (Israel); the Youth Spirit Center (Jordan).
Ceramicoop started in 2020, as a 1-year cooperation project, co-funded by the European Union under the Erasmus+ programme. The mobility activity of 2020 has been postponed due to the pandemic situation.
