Bracker’s is proud to be a supporter of an incredible organization that support the growth of ceramics across the country. The National Council on Education for the Ceramic Arts, (or NCECA) is over 50 years old. As the organization itself has grown, it has also fostered the growth of the field through its national conference as well as its year-round programming & opportunities.
Through its residency programs, fellowships, mentorship and volunteer opportunities, NCECA helps to connect artist to each other and to communities. From its humble beginnings at early conferences drawing around 500 primarily university professors (including Bill Bracker) to recent conferences hosting 6000 plus lovers of clay ranging from full time, part time and leisure potters to museum staff, curators, collectors & gallery owners, to professors and undergrads, grad students, post baccs, to foundations and their residents, to arts centers, manufacturers, distributors, publishers, and often spouses and children of all of these categories, NCECA has established itself as a leader and visionary in the ceramic art movement.
In addition to maintaining a corporate membership with NCECA, and supporting the conference through sponsoring the NCECA App, providing materials, & logistics assistance, Bracker’s will also be matching the monetary donation of its employees and customers on GivingTuesday and for the entire week following, up to $1500.
