British Ceramics Biennial is involved in a number of international projects working with organisations and initiatives in supporting artists exchange aiming to deepen cultural and artist-lead dialogues between countries, organisations, artists and potters.
Platformed at BCB 2021, Kasama Potters, Clay College and Staffordshire University embark on a new collaboration and exchange between Stoke-on-Trent and Kasama, Japan. The initiative seeks to meaningfully build upon the Kasama Potters exhibition at BCB 2019 and the existing connection between Stoke-on-Trent and Kasama as places of significant ceramic heritage and contemporary practice. The exchange will take place through exhibition and through an online exchange programme.
This exhibition seeks to highlight the talent located in and emerging from Kasama and Stoke-on-Trent and the relevance that intercultural exchange can have in better understanding the significance of our places as the catalyst for creative innovation and excellence.
