Future Lights



Future Lights is an annual competition platform for emerging professionals pursing a career in ceramics. Each year the Future Lights competition brings together a group of 6 new graduates living in Europe in support of cross-disciplinary learning and approaches between ceramic designers, art historians, researchers, makers and artists of the future. Supporting more than 24 emerging professionals since 2016 the Future Lights competition introduce participants to entirely new experiences and unparalleled career opportunities exhibiting in high profile exhibitions, taking part in sector leading events across Europe and networking opportunities with leaders in the field of European ceramics. With an international cohort of ambassadors for ceramics the Future Lights competition reaches new audiences and continues to connect and inspire the next wave of talent coming through.

The Future Lights competition is run by Ceramics and its Dimensions which is generously supported by Creative EU funding, European Ceramics Society and JECS Trust.
