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.

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.

Director
 
Spike Island wishes to appoint a new Director to lead the organisation when Helen Legg departs in the summer to take up the role of Director of Tate Liverpool.
 
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.

Also at the Festival are an outdoor chimney furnace to show bronze casting in action, a make-your-own ferrofluid (magnetic liquid) stand and an hands-on pewter casting activity.

The Institute of Making shop is back as usual as is our wondrous Materials Library display. All this and much more will be yours to explore, create, delve into, design, delight in and do.
