Community Arts Space 2021
In collaboration with participants from Nia Centre for the Arts
Established in 2016, Community Arts Space (CAS) is the Gardiner’s incubator for arts-based projects that build community through clay making.
In October 2021, the Gardiner and Nia Centre for the Arts partnered to offer a series of free clay workshops for Black community members looking to experiment with the medium. 10 participants were led by instructor Adam Williams. In addition to hands-on making, participants attended inspiring talks by Black ceramic artists Christine Nnawuchi and Sharon Norwood.
The experiences of the participants and images of their work are shared on the Nia Centre’s blog.
