The MIAIR Program is designed to serve artists at all stages of their career. Artists are able to pursue their investigations together in spacious semi-private studios. The residency experience is one of cooperation and creativity. This collaborative spirit extends beyond the studio and spills over into the community in the form public events, sales, classes, and special events. Artists also bring their diverse cultural experiences, specialized technical abilities, educational backgrounds, and most importantly an endless variety of definitions of what a ceramic art practice can be. MIAIR is housed in the new Shaw International Centre for Contemporary Ceramics , part of the 150 acre Historc Clay District which includes a museum, a brick plant, a china factory, and a clay manufacturer.
