The Northern Indiana Clay Alliance exists to collect the energy from the last 50+ years to build a sustainable future for the next generation of ceramic artists in our region, while honoring the work of those that have come before. Founded in 2022, this 501(c)3 non-profit has already made impressive strides in just a year’s time. That includes being awarded grants from a number of organizations.

This work has delivered a number of opportunities to members, which now total over 100, while also providing a strong foundation for work to be done in the coming years.

While our work in garnering grants during 2023 was notable, the current nature of arts-focused funding is in flux. Many programs continue to be slashed as government funding comes under fire. 

You can help the Northern Indiana Clay Alliance continue to build its mission, maintain the progress we’ve made, and expand our reach with a tax-deductible donation.

Represent Indiana’s clay scene and support NICA by purchasing one of our t-shirts or hoodies designed by local artists. Net profits go to support our programming and scholarships throughout the year.
