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.

DANGERR: A Design Competition (JUNE 2 DEADLINE)
Designs Aiming for a New #GunSense Emphasis on Regulations & Reform

The Rhode Island Coalition Against Gun Violence (RICAGV) was founded in 2013 after the Sandy Hook Shooting. The organization works with volunteers across the state to lobby and provide education around common sense legislative solutions to violence. Since the tragedy in Parkland, Florida the RICAGV has doubled down on their legislative solutions to ban weapons of war and prevent the militarization of our schools. For this initiative, the RICAGV is proud to support the One Gone Gun project which is working to organize a gun buy back in the state of Rhode Island.
-Kat Kerwin, Director of Communications,
The Rhode Island Coalition Against Gun Violence

We are looking for bold, affordable works of wearable, useable or decorative art to further an awareness of the gun violence epidemic we still face. We hope to promote conversations that spark debate while providing needed resources to support real action including a planned gun amnesty/buy-back organized by artist Scott Lapham. The competition will also support the RICAGV’s continued advocacy for responsible gun laws.

Designers, artists and metalsmiths are intrigued by material, technique and the challenges presented by engineering obstacles. Not only do they shape objects for wear, use and decoration but also for political commentary. The goal of this competition is to showcase, promote and sell the best designs which may employ an arsenal of wit and skill to transform weapon imagery beyond its deadly intent. The winning entries will ultimately support the entrants as well as the efforts of the RICAGV.

Dear Friends,
 
I am very honored to announce two new programs currently operating at the ILJMuseum. The Hephaistos Summer School and the Jewelry Artist in Residenceprogram, JaIR, open this summer for the first time in a Museum.

The Hephaistos Summer School, www.jss.gr , is a pioneering two-week long accredited program on the History of Western Jewelry.  The Hephaistos summer school commences this June and is the first of its kind to run in a museum. The participants will learn about the history of western jewelry from classical archaeology to contemporary artistic jewelry and technologies of jewelry making. The program is run by esteemed Greek and international academics. It is accredited by the Hellenic American Universityhttp://hauniv.edu/.
 
The ILJM, also inaugurates the first Jewelry Artist in Residence program in a museum, worldwide. The newly established JaIR, opens to national and international applicants from May 1st . This Museum Residency applies to individuals that wish to engage in cultivating their art or science and engage in public activities with visitors and other artists. The Residents will be based in the new Metalsmithing Studio - ZEM and the Jewelry Crafts Studio - ZEDET located on the Museum premises.

 

For more information and applications, please, contact us: administration@lalaounis-jewelrymuseum.gr.

  

Best Regards,

 

Ioanna I Lalaouni
