The Australian Ceramics Association (TACA) works within a generous grass-roots ceramics community, drawing our membership from all states and territories. Foremost to our Strategic Plan are our members, our aim being to provide services for the benefit of their ceramics practice and to create connections between them and the broader arts community.
Membership is open to everyone interested in Australian ceramics, including professional ceramicists and potters, hobbyists, teachers, students, curators, collectors, writers and enthusiasts.
We aim to connect with established ceramic groups such as societies, clubs, study groups and associations and to those who exhibit ceramics such as galleries, artist-run spaces, retail shops, online stores and public institutions.
We value and support those who provide services and opportunities to ceramic practitioners, such as suppliers, competition organisers, artist residencies, workshops, classes and tertiary ceramics education.
We advocate for, and on behalf of, our members, and our community, to strengthen ceramics in Australia.
We reach out to the broader public to inspire, inform and connect people with Australian ceramics. We work to spread the excitement and passion of ceramics throughout Australia so that everyone has the opportunity to recognise, experience and value ceramics in their daily lives.
In 1956, the Potters Society of Australia was formed to encourage and foster the development, appreciation and recognition of potters and pottery. It was the first ceramics organisation in Australia.
In 2006, our name was changed to The Australian Ceramics Association to more fully reflect the scope of practice of the members.
We are a national, not-for-profit organisation.
