The Association for Contemporary Jewellery

is devoted to the promotion, representation, understanding and development of contemporary jewellery in the United Kingdom and abroad.

Founded as a membership association in 1997 and registered as a Limited Company in 2006, it recognises a need to foster discussion, debate and critical review and interaction amongst its members. To this end we organise conferences, lectures, seminars, workshops and an annual general meeting for our members. Our regular newsletter, findings, features reviews, information, comment, book offers and discounts and is of benefit to both our members and the wider public. We also produce a monthly e-bulletin featuring news and opportunities.

We welcome as members practising jewellers, associated designers and crafts people, educators, students, gallery owners and retailers, museum curators, critics and collectors - indeed, anyone with an interest in contemporary jewellery.

https://cerfplus.org/?org=808&lvl=100&ite=445&lea=15412... Today, the nation learned the startling news that President Trump has proposed a full elimination of the National Endowment for the Arts, National Endowment for the Humanities, the Corporation for Public Broadcasting, Institute for Museum and and other vital arts and culture institutions. In this first proposed budget for FY2018 from the White House, we are facing what many have been speculating would happen. But we are not giving up.
This is not a done deal. It is only the first of many steps in the eventual passage of a federal budget that lays out the administration's priorities that will be negotiated with Congress. The final budget will be written by and passed by Congress over the next few months, which means WE MUST ACT NOW to advocate for the federal funding of the arts and humanities and the very future of our culture.
CERF+ is taking the following steps
• CERF+ is co-sponsoring and participating in Arts Advocacy Day to strongly advocate for arts and artist friendly policies in Washington DC.
• CERF+ is co-sponsoring the CREATE Act of 2016 (S. 2648) introduced by Senator Tom Udall (NM), which includes our proposed regulatory change at FEMA for post disaster tool replacement for self-employed workers (like artists).
• CERF+ is reaching out to our own community (that’s you!) encouraging your voice and participation in these important efforts.
