Student led presentations are now a regular feature of the annual NCECA conference program. Some years prior to today’s increased level of student presentation involvement, NCECA provided a dark room with seating and a projector known as the Student Slide Forum. It was a space where a few brave students made brief, somewhat informal image presentations to an audience composed primarily of other students. Some of you have expressed missing that opportunity as a place where unexpected connections and discoveries occurred.
This year in Kansas City, NCECA is launching blinc, a new programming concept, which you can read more about here. blinc is a forum to make fast-paced, engaging impressions through words and images This initiative is open to all NCECA members, both students of clay in universities and students of clay in life.
Students, we encourage you to present a body of work, a new process you have been working out, or an interesting research topic. Think of blinc as a great way to get your work out there, and to get some experience talking about it before a diverse audience.
Get your images together now and head to the blinc call for entry on the NCECA website to submit your proposal! But don’t delay, this opportunity ends on October 14, 2015!
