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.

‘Sensorium Tests’ and ‘At the Threshold’ by Daria Martin
8 March 2018—27 August 2018
‘At the Threshold’ and ‘Sensorium Tests’ explore the relationship between art, science and empathy through the experience of people with synaesthesia. This condition produces experiences in one sense that are usually felt in another or by another – for example, perceiving sounds as colours. A person with mirror-touch feels other people's sensations of touch, both painful and pleasurable.
 
The films, set in the style of 1950s melodramas, encourage you to inhabit the experiences of others and truly watch with all your senses.

Are you an outstanding cultural leader with artistic credibility, commercial acumen, and connectivity? Can you enhance and showcase the impact of Warwick Arts Centre, the UK’s largest and most successful University based multi-art form venue? We are looking for an exceptional individual who will inspire communities through art, culture and creative learning, and deepen the role of Warwick Arts Centre within the University of Warwick, the region and the nation.


Warwick Arts Centre delivers a high-quality, engaging, diverse artistic programme of performing and visual arts; and an extensive creative learning programme for schoolchildren, young people, families, students and learners of all ages. Collaborating with a range of partner organisations - including acclaimed orchestras, galleries and pioneering theatre companies - we have a long
tradition of commissioning new work. Relationships with artists, students, academics and the wider community are at the heart of what we do.


We are at a critical and exciting point in our development. Warwick Arts Centre is in the middle of a major £32m programme of capital renewal, with investment from the University, Arts Council England, charitable trusts and audience members. By autumn 2020, we will open three new cinemas, a more accessible visual arts gallery and enhanced visitor facilities. Warwick Arts Centre will be a flagship venue and partner in the University’s contribution to Coventry City of
Culture 2021.

We are looking for a person with energy, experience and commitment to lead and develop the organisation and its over-arching vision – artistic and organisational. Supported by a committed and highly motivated staff team and board, the successful candidate will consolidate and build on the success of recent years and develop a range of new and exciting initiatives.
