Stepping Up is Australia's premier ceramics event which brings our community together. Held in Canberra, the program is designed to showcase ceramics by presenting important discourses and helping to expand skills and ideas.

The 2015 Triennale includes three days of conference presentations – keynote talks, panel discussions, individual artist's presentations; pre-conference master classes, exhibitions, a trade fair, a potters' market and, of course, a wealth of social events.
