Annual projects

Working in two-year cycles British Ceramics Biennial initiates and manages projects working with local and national artists and delivers an associated programme of engagement projects with Stoke-on-Trent residents.

Through a combination of artist-led projects, residencies and commissions, BCB creates opportunities for ceramic artists to develop ideas and new works in the context of Stoke-on-Trent’s heritage as the Potteries, its resident communities and its ambitions as an international centre of excellence for contemporary ceramics.


BCB is committed to increasing opportunities for public to be involved in creative activity as participants and cultural producers.

To this end BCB works in partnership with cultural, education and industry sector organisations across the city, building individual creative sensibilities, confidence and making skills, engendering community health and well being and a sense of civic pride.

Outcomes from the year round projects feed into the exhibitions, events and activities presented as part of the biennial festival.
