Sundaymorning@ekwc is an internationally renowned ceramic workshop and knowledge centre where visual artists, designers, architects and other creative professionals can explore the artistic possibilities of ceramics. This is realised in three ways: through the artist-in-residency, the centre-of-excellence and the FabLab. The centre is open for public, higher education and commerce.
In partnership with the Korea Ceramic Foundation (KOCEF), Sundaymorning@ekwc offers a Korean artists among artists selected at the International Competition of KICB2019 an opportunity to participate in its residency program.
As an artist-in-residency sundaymorning@ekwc accommodates sixteen participants at a time who can experiment with ceramics during a 12 week work period. During this time, workshops, a studio, a guestroom and the advice of our expert staff are at their disposal. Participants are visual artists, designers and architects, over 75% of whom have not worked with ceramics before. Residents come from all over the world, their age ranges between 25 and 65 years.
Simultaneously, sundaymorning@ekwc acts as a research centre; a centre-of-excellence. The centre’s experts document everything that is being discovered, invented and created at the institute. Through exhibitions, lectures, publications the centre valorises the results from the artist-in-residence programme.
Residencies are 12 weeks. They can start any Thursday. Once a year one can apply. Every year we receive hundreds of applications. Workplan, impact and diversity play important roles during the selection process.
On the 4th of December 1969, the Ceramic Workcentre in Heusden was founded. In the past 50 years, the centre has grown into a leading residency and workshop. The centre is open to experiment and innovation and is, thanks to the specialized facilities and knowledgeable staff, an ideal workplace for artists, designers and architects.
