The fundamental axis of the project focuses on showing the ceramic tradition of different continents through contemporary ceramists.
This initiative is reflected in the first international meeting held in cities united in time through ceramics: INTERCONTINENTAL CERAMICS.
During the week of 4 to 10 March, in Manises, Alcora, Onda and Valencia there will be demonstrations and workshops of three ceramists coming from three different continents. The demonstrations will be accompanied by visits to cities, exhibitions, conferences, performance and other activities that will bring together and share the culture and tradition of different continents.

Intercontinental Ceramics has the dual task of creating and disseminating online cultural content in order to reach the widest possible audience. To do this, new technologies are essential, so a global platform will be created that will remain active even at the end of the activity, in order to give continuity and be able to offer information about the project, participants, collaborators, … uninterruptedly.
The workshops and activities will be reproduced in streaming on the platform for online registrants, however there will also be open content that can be seen by those interested anywhere on the planet, offering those involved in the project a global visibility.
Intercontinental Ceramics is conceived as a meeting place and exchange of tradition and culture through ceramics.
One of the objectives of the first meeting of Intercontinental Ceramics is to create links with entities and ceramists from different parts of the world in order to itinerate the project annually to other countries.
This will make it possible to visit and get to know new cultures, customs and ways of life each year, generating experiences and links with people from all over the world.
