Goal of Community Outreach / Social Engagement Project Award:
In alignment with the vision of the National Clay Week, the contest goal is to unite through the material of ceramics. In this contest we aim to unite communities in conversations and explorations in material knowledge, experience, and possibilities of clay: the material we all know and love.
Pitch us a project that uses clay to unite members of communities that might not normally engage each other. Outline how this project will impact those who participate, and their communities. What conversations do you hope will be inspired from the material and process? How will those conversations will shape members of those communities? Tell us how you plan on spending the awarded Amaco product and funding.
