YCN Newsletter 18 - New YCN Representative call

You can now apply to the YCN Representative position here! Deadline for applications is October 31st 2023.

The main purpose of the YCN Representative role is to facilitate efficient communication and transfer of opportunities between the YCN and local ceramic communities in both directions. By doing that, our goal is to reach every young ceramist in the world and you can help us!

There are several benefits associated with becoming a YCN Representative:

  • You will gain visibility in national and international ceramic community
  • The most active YCN Representative will receive funding to come to the ECerS conference in Dresden in 2025
  • We are able to provide technical support in case you want to organize a YCN event, such as a workshop (online/in person) or webinar (online)
  • We are able to help you with JECS Trust application for funding of a workshop or similar type of event
  • You will be able to directly provide input on our activities and will be the first to know about (and test) some of our projects that we plan to launch

There are also responsibilities and requirements:

  • This is a position for almost 2 years (until the following ECerS conference in Dresden)
  • You are expected to be active in the YCN and your local ceramic community and spread the word about YCN
  • Share news from your community in the YCN groups and vice versa
  • You will need to join our quarterly meetings, which take place around 14–16 CET to cover most of the time zones (date and time of the following meeting is always announced during the meeting, i.e. 2–3 months ahead)
  • Being an ECerS member is an advantage (but a brand new membership after acceptance to the YCN Representative position is ok!)


If you have any hesitations or questions, let us know at !
