Support and sponsors
We have received additional support from other institutions, associations, art galleries and artists. All this support constitutes a significant contribution that will ensure the success of this global ceramic event. The Finnish IAC members have also made significant contributions over several years in the planning of the Congress – both with its program and its accompanying events.
The amount of private sponsorship and support from public sources remains an estimation. The organisers plan to apply for funding from private companies interested in ceramics as a contemporary art.
