The Ceramics Association of New Zealand proudly presents Feast (Together) – The George Festival of Tableware 2020.
This year, the festival will be hosted by the Canterbury-West Coast region at the beautifully restored historic Arts Centre Te Matatiki Toi Ora.
Generously sponsored by The George and partnering with the Canterbury Museum, the Teece Museum and the Christchurch Art Gallery to deliver additional complementary activities.
The festival has been designed to celebrate all thing 'tableware', with New Zealand makers, producers, users and the public coming together for a feast of body, mind and spirit. FEAST, MAKE and SEE with a range of events and activities open to the public.
The competition entry calls nationally to all members of Ceramics Association of New Zealand and the wider arts community, from new and emerging artists to studio specialists, taking the opportunity to push tableware to new standards. The awards are designed to enable the recipients to develop their own practice further by creating sustainability in the design & arts industry. Push the envelope with the humble tableware setting and astonish us with your ceramic serviceware.
Finalist entries will be curated into a magnificent exhibition, in the style of a Vemeer Banquet, to be showcased in the Great Hall of The Arts Centre Te Matatiki Toi Ora.
