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.

Application Forms Out Very Soon - for what was probably the most successful craft event in the UK calendar during 2011. For many of the exhibitors present, the best ever!

 

We are pleased to announce a new area for the marquees for our Christmas Fair at RHS Gardens Wisley.

 

News Update For Craft in Focus at RHS Wisley Gardens 21 - 25 November

This year the event will be held within two temporary hard walled pavilions.  For those familiar with the garden, we are using the north end of Seven Acres Lawn, and the new event lawn within the garden. The entrances to both of these will be within 50m of the conservatory restaurant so keeping everything central. (This is similar to the area used for our spring event)

The Bemis Center for Contemporary Arts offers artists-in-residence the gift of time, space, and financial support. Few programs exist either on the national or international level where the sole mission is to support the creativity of artists. From the beginning, the art-making process has been the highest priority at the Bemis Center for Contemporary Arts, where both the atmosphere and environment offer ideal situations for creative growth and experimentation. Artists from around the world come to the Bemis Center to work in this supportive community and confront new challenges. Residency: January 2013 - June 2013.
Deadline: 28 March 2012

Provisions Library, a non-profit instigator of arts and social change is pleased to launch research residencies that investigate futures for creative civil society. The program will bring together four residents (artists, scholars, activists, and practitioners) for research-based projects that explore and extend social change themes. Participants will gain exposure to policies, practices, and politics while exploring transformative social imaginations and strategies. The rapidly changing urban and institutional landscape of Washington DC will serve as a platform, model, and resource to propose and prepare social futures. Participants will pursue research and action-based projects that explore the residency topic.
