The Whitegold Project
The Whitegold Project works with creative people to celebrate the culture of clay.
The Whitegold Project fosters local, national and international cultural activity and exchange around clay, ceramics and the arts which explores future sustainability through a variety of means. Based in St Austell, projects include the burgeoning Whitegold Festival and as well as plans for small and large-scale, permanent and temporary art installations made from the clay and about the culture of clay country. Two new initiatives are the Whitegold International Ceramic Prize and Clay Exchange, supporting new collaborations and cultural networks. The object of the Whitegold Project is to raise the profile of St Austell as a globally recognised destination for art and clay, an attraction for visitors from across the world.
