2013 Programme Announced
07 May 2013
The biennial starts in: 133 Days
This autumn, the British Ceramics Biennial (BCB) returns to Stoke-on-Trent for its biggest line-up to date. Running from 28 September to 10 November , this festival of the best in contemporary ceramics will bring together 150 artists through exhibitions, installations and events that draw on the heritage and creative edge of Stoke-on-Trent.
The 2013 festival will celebrate the role of the individual artist, inviting them to explore, create and curate making visitors’ encounter with ceramics all the more special, entertaining and meaningful. Alongside this, a working ceramic studio and programme of hands-on workshops will make sure everyone leaves the Biennial with at least some clay under their fingernails.
Barney Hare Duke and Jeremy Theophilus, Co-Directors of British Ceramics Biennial, comment: ‘For this third British Ceramics Biennial, we want to encourage, provoke and engage our visitors. As well as a world-class line-up of exhibitions, creative collaborations and interventions, for 2013 we’ve increased the number of events that encourage hands-on involvement with the material itself as a way of getting people really engaged and experiencing the creative potential of ceramics.’
