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.

Rue Pigalle creates bespoke trips for jewellery and art lovers who want to peer behind the curtain of the makers spaces. We caught up with Founder Isabelle Fish to discuss how jewellery can tell a story, the careful curation of her trips, and why the emotional connection with handmade objects is more important than ever.

Friday Late: Cyborgs
FRI 15 MAR, 19.00–23.00
FREE EVENT | DROP-IN
 
Join us for an evening of irreverent performance, conversation and cocktails where we’ll rethink the boundaries we perceive between animal, human or machine, or between races, genders or classes.
Hear from artists, designers and engineers who are challenging assumptions about how we classify things and asking whose voices we listen to when designing the future.

What is Get Creative?
 
Get Creative Festival shines a light on all the great cultural activity that takes place right across the UK on a regular basis and encourages people to try their hand at something new and creative. This huge national celebration of creativity aims to give everyone the chance to get actively involved in a creative event in their local area.
 
From Saturday 11th – Sunday 19th May 2019 hundreds of organisations and community groups will be putting on events to help you get creative – and they’re free or have just a small fee to cover costs. We had over 1,400 events across the UK during our 2018 festival and we’re excited about growing the numbers in 2019 to celebrate and showcase creativity in every community.
 
Get Creative Festival is brought to you by arts and creative organisations and individuals across the UK and is supported by 64 Million Artists, Arts Council England, Arts Council of Northern Ireland, Arts Council of Wales, the BBC, Crafts Council, Creative People and Places, Creative Scotland, Family Arts Campaign, Voluntary Arts, and What Next? Want to get a head start on planning your event? See our event planning toolkit for 2019 which has lots of useful tips. For more information contact info@getcreativeuk.com.
