Robert Wetherington

Western Washington Chapter President

Robert joined the Fulbright Association in 2016. He completed his Fulbright to Slovakia in 2013-14

How has your Fulbright experience impacted your life and career? 

My Fulbright experience allowed me to really evaluate the cultural differences in Slovakia that exist and how art and craft influences our perception of that culture. Career-wise, the opportunity allowed me to focus more on the development of my own practice in Ceramics and volunteer on my local Fulbright Chapter.

What is your most memorable experience as a Fulbright Association member? 

Attending the national conference in DC has been the most memorable part of being in the Fulbright Association thus far. Touring the capitol, meeting with different representatives, and advocating for the program was insightful and enjoyable experience.
