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.

Scholarships for Young Artists to attend the Glasgow Congress in 2012


The FIDEM Executive Committee are now implementing the agreed policy of awarding 10 scholarships of 1000 Euros to assist the attendance of young artists at the 2012 Congress. The age limit for the scholarships is 25 but consideration would be given for special circumstances.

This scheme is intended to provide a framework by which artists who are relatively new to medal-making can develop their interest in the medal as a vehicle of artistic expression. Its aim is to deepen and broaden the selected artists’ knowledge of the medal and expand their awareness of the medium’s possibilities through attendance at the congress.


Artists eligible for the scheme will generally have shown an interest in medal-making and had some experience of studying and making medals. 

The applications from artists wishing to be considered for the scheme should consist of:

a letter explaining why the artist is interested in the scheme and what s/he hopes to get out of it.

a curriculum vitae.

And printed images (not transparencies or a disk) of six works by the artist. 

The Congress Registration fee will be deducted from the 1000 Euro. The balance will be made available to the successful applicant as a contribution towards travel and accommodation. 

Applications should be received by the National Delegate by April 29th 2012 who will forward these to the General Secretary Maria Rosa Figueiredo.


E-mail enquiries should be sent to Maria Rosa Figueiredo

Marsh Awards for Excellence in Gallery Education

 

In 2011 engage and the Marsh Christian Trust will present an inaugural award to celebrate the achievements of those working in learning and education within gallery or visual arts contexts. The awards are principally for colleagues working within galleries (freelance, salaried or as volunteers), although those working with other visual arts organisations may also apply.
