ABOUT OUR

COMMITTEE





ClayHouston would like to introduce the recent work that we have been doing in our newly formed Equity, Inclusion, and Access (EIA) Committee. The Committee was formed in July 2020 as a response to recent police violence against Black people. We are committed to our ongoing efforts in order to cultivate greater diversity and access in the field of ceramics.

OUR MISSION

Working to bridge the gap between clay and under-represented communities in Houston while naming and co-creating opportunities within our organization and alongside city partners to provide inclusive programing and engagement, regardless of religion, race, gender, sexual orientation or ability.




OUR ONGOING WORK

Annual Award for Texas BIPOC Ceramic Artists

This award is dedicated to providing funding for ceramic artists in Texas who self-identify as Black, Indigenous, and/or People of Color. ClayHouston has created this award as part of our ongoing efforts to cultivate greater diversity and access in the field of ceramics. In addition to those efforts, we acknowledge the heavy toll of the combined forces of COVID-19, systemic racism, and the economic uncertainty currently facing many BIPOC communities. ClayHouston awards two individual winners with $1,200 each. One winner will be chosen from each of the two categories: Emerging and Mid-Career & Beyond.  Learn more

Annual Donation to HISD

Each Fall we donate funds to provide ceramics tools and art supplies  to our local school programs in partnership with the Ceramic Store of Houston .
