The Speakers and Artists program has been a melting pot of debates and presentations around the important discourses within the ceramics and wider artworld, and a focal point for discussion on how the craft and its variety of practitioners are evolving to meet new challenges. The conference program consisted of keynote speakers followed by chaired panels.
There were artists presentations which were booked on a daily basis.
Akio Takamori and Masamichi Yoshikawa led Masterclasses in the week prior to the conference.
There were demonstrations running throughout the conference weekend at the JamFactory, University of South Australia and Adelaide College of the Arts, TAFE SA. We had over 18 artists doing demonstrations including such names as Prue Venables, Gerry Wedd, Phil Hart, Sandy Lockwood, just to name a few.
