25/28 August 2022 Cava de 'Tirreni - Monumental Complex of San Giovanni

For four days, the cities of Cava de' Tirreni and Vietri sul Mare will talk and live about ceramics. A path that combines culture, tradition and interaction with the territory. It will highlight the skills of women in the practice of ceramic art, within the 'international women's art scene. The event leads toward cultural and social change through the material of ceramics. An 'opportunity where the stories of each woman and their artistic experience converge and confront each other, where to draw proposals to make known the potential of the female world. A world that women have always protected, protected and supported with their visions of care. A moment, that of the festival, to manifest the 'female aptitude to express values, projects, personalities and paths related to contemporaneity, in art, culture and crafts.
The program of this edition of the Matres International Women's Ceramics Festival will be an expression of new "visions" in support of a borderless global world where territories become the places of collective interaction and integration of knowledge and expertise. In particular, for this edition the theme of the matres festival is "Naturantis." The works on display and the entire festival program will revolve around the themes green- evolution, environment and sustainable economy. Hence women, through their ancient art, will issue a call to all to re-weave the fabric of society with new "visions of care" and globally stimulate human consciousness to respect the self, others, our planet and the environment around us. Primarily women will be involved in the various proposals of the festival, but also experts, companies, students, and visitors.
Many events: solo and group exhibitions, workshops on raku techniques and experimental firing, workshops for children, adults, people with disabilities, markets, meetings, conferences, debates, book presentations, open workshops, music, dinners and social promotion events, and much more.
The program is aimed at everyone, experts in the field and visitors alike, but primarily at women who wish to empower themselves in the areas of work and creativity, to stimulate and foster their potential for fulfillment and turn their dreams into projects, and extends to broader cultural proposals that turn to the protection and respect of the self and others, to the protection and respect of the environment.
The Matres was organized by Aps Pandora Artiste Ceramiste under the patronage of the Campania Region, in collaboration with the municipalities of Cava de' Tirreni and Vietri sul Mare, the Salerno CNA and the KWCA. The aim is to involve everyone: the tourist, craft, school, commercial and economic sectors, those working in the sector, visitors, people with disabilities, the elderly, women and those who are disadvantaged or have problems with motor and psychological rehabilitation. The hope is to continuously stimulate itineraries to visit the places of origin and activities of the artists, as well as to encourage a path of knowledge, discovery and dissemination of the tradition related to art, culture, crafts that make our territory a reference and tourist destination of excellence for the rest of the world. The Festival promotes meetings and comparisons between different experiences and ceramic traditions of the Italian and international territory. The most diverse technical, artistic and linguistic expressions, both traditional and innovative in the field of ceramic art, will meet. The aim is to consolidate the "WOMAN CERAMICS PROJECT" in support of the female universe through the creations of female artists - ceramicists.
