Supporting People of Color in the ceramic arts!

WHO we are:

The Color Network launched in December 2018 with a mission to support people of color (POC) in the ceramic arts. The Color Network highlights opportunities in the field and provides an artist database for teachers and curators to reference, helping them to create more diverse programming and exhibitions. We aim to bring increased visibility and foster cross-generational connections between ceramic artists of color.


WHY donate:

In partnership with our fiscal sponsor, Watershed Center for the Ceramic Arts, The Color Network was recently awarded a grant from the National Endowment for the Arts to support the development our mentorship program  .

Your generous support will enable us to meet both our matching funds requirement for the NEA grant and help support futures expenses associated with our ongoing initiatives, which have included: 

• Highlighting POC artists on our website and social media 
• Providing artists of color with financial assistance to ship work
• Establishing an emerging curatorial fellowship for people of color
• Curating exhibitions with diverse artist representation 
• Providing free portfolio & application reviews to artists of color 
• Partnering with community organizations to create scholarships for POC artists

The Color Network is managed by a small group of artist volunteers, and although we’re proud of what has been accomplished in just a few short years (with very limited resources), there’s still much more work to be done. Please help us continue to grow and expand The Color Network’s impact in the ceramics community.

Show your support today by making a tax-deductible donation and/or sharing this fundraising campaign with your network.


NOTE: As we are not currently a nonprofit, all donations will be processed through our fiscal sponsor, Watershed Center For The Ceramic Arts, enabling your contribution to The Color Network to remain tax-deductible.
