Future Lights is an annual competition for people in the early stages of a career in ceramics.
Each year, recent graduates from across Europe are invited to apply to Porzellanikon, setting out their experience and responding to the year’s theme. In 2017, the Future Lights theme is:
Diversity – of materials, people, methods, approaches, and cultures
Finalists will be invited to present to a panel of experts from museums, universities and other institutions specialising in ceramics. Winners will be offered further opportunities to showcase their work at high profile events e.g. Ambiente consumer goods trade fair, and will be invited to attend a workshop to collaborate with their peers working in different disciplines.
“The Future Lights competition is designed to build new bridges and provide a platform for recent graduates to further their careers”. Wilhelm Siemen, Director, Porzellanikon
