Mount Pleasant Potters’ Guild is an independent non-profit society formed in August 2012 by members of the Ceramics Studio at the North Mount Pleasant Arts Centre in Calgary, Alberta. We work to build a community where ceramic artists, hobbyists and students of all levels come together to learn more about ceramics, improve technical skills and enhance our lives through creative expression. This supportive environment helps provide inspiration and motivation.
Central to the Guild mandate is our educational programming. This consists of evening presentations and weekend workshops where internationally recognized ceramic artists and local potters share their knowledge and expertise with members and the general public.
Mount Pleasant Pottery Guild is committed to fostering a positive and supportive community for all members. Our organization values diversity, inclusion, and respect. We believe that every member should be able to engage in their passion for pottery without fear of harassment or discrimination. Our goal is to maintain a safe space where all individuals can thrive and enjoy their creative pursuits. By adhering to these principles, we can collectively contribute to a positive and supportive environment within the guild Guild and when interacting with the public.
Members are expected to treat each other with kindness and consideration. We encourage open communication and the sharing of ideas in a constructive manner. If any member experiences or witnesses harassment, they are encouraged to report it promptly to a board member, who will take appropriate action to address the issue.
Harassment in any form, including but not limited to verbal, physical, or visual harassment, will not be tolerated. This includes actions, comments, or displays that create an intimidating, offensive, or hostile environment. We strive to maintain an atmosphere where everyone feels valued, respected, and free to express their creativity.
