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.

Birmingham City Council, the buildings' owner, has told tenants of the Jewellery Quarter workshops it intends to sell the properties.
 
Many have said they fear being made to move to make way for apartments.
 
The city council said potential buyers of the sites should look to retain some or all of their commercial use.
 
The local authority said the sites in the Vyse Street Triangle, Caroline Street and Pitsford Street were identified as having the potential to support housing growth and job creation.
 
But traders said they feared future owners of the buildings would force them out.

Lack of career progression among women in the cultural sector is the overwhelming contributor to the significant gender pay gap revealed in initial findings from the 2018 ArtsPay survey.

Today we are announcing the 12 recipients of awards and commissions that will form the backbone of our 2019 visual arts development and exhibition programme at Jerwood Space, London and on tour nationally.

The 12 artists are Appau Jnr Boakye-Yiadom, Kitty Clark and Sofia Mitsola (Jerwood Solo Presentations); Webb-Ellis and Richard Whitby (Jerwood/FVU Awards); Max Bainbridge and Abigail Booth (Forest + Found), Mark Corfield-Moore, Lucie Gledhill, Bethan Lloyd Worthington and Tana West (Jerwood Makers Open); and Silvia Rosi and Theo Simpson (Jerwood/Photoworks Awards).

We believe they represent some of the most promising early-career artists showcasing a diversity of artistic practices and cross-disciplinary approaches in the UK today. Selected through national call for entries and expert selection panels, they are our ‘ones to watch’ for 2019, and we’re tremendously excited about them.
