North Coast Ceramics INC.

Have you ever imagined being part of a broader community of creatives?

North Coast Ceramics Inc.

In the interests of sharing knowledge and strengthening relationships North Coast Ceramics Incorporated was launched in 2018.

NCC Inc is a body of clayworkers working across every aspect of the ceramic spectrum who have joined forces to foster community spirit in the field with the aim of centralising the energy and creating opportunities for artists exploring this medium. Ceramics in this region is thriving in every way and by having a supportive communal voice, we can enjoy a stronger presence in the overarching arts community and beyond.

Being a formal organisation, the strength in numbers will make it easier to apply for exhibitions and regional opportunities, attract funding, host workshops, increase marketing and sales networks, participate in events and build healthy, creative relationships from the ground up. If your private studio is tucked away in a beautiful location and you are an artist working in isolation, or if you are new to the area or alternatively well established, joining our fledgling organisation could make sense for your business and additionally provide nourishing social and professional connections.

Your annual membership fee of $35,  (Student concession $25) will automatically give you eligibility to be in the annual North Coast Mud Trail (given you also follow the Australian Ceramics Association guidelines) and further to this, you will be invited to participate in any of the events or opportunities we put forward. NCC Inc welcomes any enquiries and warmly embraces new artists at any stage of their career in the true spirit of the North Coast.
