Artists are invited to apply for the 2020 symposium.This symposium will provide a creative platform for experimental workshops where artists from a variety of backgrounds can engage in creative practice using contemporary and traditional forms of ceramic expression. Dialogue between artists will encourage research, experimentation and innovation in art. The theme of this year’s symposium – sustainability. We do offer the material – Bone China, which carries in itself approximately 50 percent of calves bone ash, taken from the agricultural waste. Participants will get to know local environment and cultural context and create bone china artwork for the intended exhibition space – in Kaunas Picture Gallery, subdivision of Čiurlionis National Museum. 
The  opening of the exhibition is going to be on June 26, 2020. 
XX International Bone China Symposium is organized by Vilnius Academy of Arts, Kaunas Faculty. It is partially funded by Lithuanian Council for Culture and will join European Capital of Culture Kaunas 2022 programma.

Our residency program is open to ceramics / sculpture and all artistic disciplines (visual arts, performance, new media, etc.) and other creative practices. We are very interested in new forms and approaches.
