The European Ceramic Work Centre is an international workplace where artists, designers and architects explore the technical and artistic possibilities of ceramics. The .ekwc operates as an artist-in-residence centre and as a centre of excellence. Its aim is to promote the development of ceramic art, design and architecture.
As an artist-in-residence centre, the .ekwc annually welcomes about 45 artists, designers and architects to experiment with ceramics for a continuous or phased period of three months.
The .ekwc does not only offer studios, workplaces, the most advanced equipment and living space, but also the support of a team of specialists. This team gives a unique added value to the residency as 75% of the participants have no or little experience with ceramics. Intensive guidance allows the participants to realize their prearranged work plans. The residency is concluded with a final presentation.
Participants enter in three different ways: through worldwide public application (20 vacancies), through a competition for recently graduated art students (4 vacancies) and through invitation (21 vacancies).
Centre of excellence
As a centre of excellence the .ekwc encourages its staff and participants to conduct research in artistic and technical fields, and also in the area of presentation. The knowledge and understanding acquired are documented and spread internationally by means of publications, exhibitions, masterclasses and conferences.
The .ekwc works together with art academies, the ceramic industry, several scientific research centres, museums and galleries in the form of special projects. The structural tasks of the EKWC are being subsidised by the Dutch Ministry of Education, Culture and Science.
On a local level ekwc works together with Cor Unum Ceramics & Art, the Academy for Art and Design and the Museum for Contemporary Art in Den Bosch Keramiek Stad (DBKS) to promote the presentation, education, production and research of ceramics in the city of 's-Hertogenbosch.
