181: Vicki Grima and Stephen Creech on increasing ceramic outreach through national open studio events
Today on the Tales of a Red Clay Rambler Podcast I have an interview with Vicki Grima and Stephen Creech. The focus of our discussion centers around nation-wide open studio events that bring the public into ceramic artist’s studios as a form of outreach and education. The Australian Ceramics Association started their open studio in 2012 and provided the model for which the American version will start this year. October 13-15, 2017 artists across the US are invited to open their studios to their local community as a part of National Clay Week. For more information on how you can join the event visit www.nationalclayweek.org/openstudio.
Vicki Grima is the executive officer of the Australian Ceramics Association and editor of the Journal of Australian Ceramics.
