Studio Dialogues

Cub Creek has always been a place where studio practice is enhanced by conversation among the residential community. In an effort to develop upon established practice current residents are implement a new project. "Studio Dialogues" is a weekly blog post that relays the best of emerging topics selected by individual residents and investigated through group discussion and research. These dialogues will be posted once a week and cover the topic as it is viewed through the lens of developing artists in residence.

The primary motivation behind this project is to generate high quality discussions relating diverse issues to contemporary practice of ceramic art. The archive of these dialogues will grow as time passes, providing residents and other communities within the ceramic arts an opportunity to follow conversations that prompt inquiry and afford an informative resource through informal publication.

The proposed method suggests that each resident select a topic once every six weeks. Each week one of these topics is posted on our community board and throughout the week the issue is called up for discussion. The key resident who has selected the topic based on personal interest is responsible for researching any details that will better inform the debate however any resident who finds interest is free to conduct their own research. Results of the research and discussions will be compiled by the key resident and posted to this blog. This method affords each resident an opportunity to bring forward a topic of their specific interest once every six weeks and limits the workload of research, drafting and publishing results to a six week schedule.

The first round of topics begins this week and once all residents have established topics they will be posted for readers.
