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.

Deadline tomorrow!
Residency Opportunity at Site Gallery
Posted on 20.12.2016

OPEN CALL TO SHEFFIELD ARTISTS
Deadline: 5pm Friday 7 January 2017

Site Gallery is hosting a Sheffield Platform Residency in early 2017, supported by Making Ways and the City of Making. The opportunity is open to all contemporary visual artists who live/work in Sheffield.

Platform residencies have led many artists on to national and international success. Artists have credited the experience as a critical moment in their careers with many gaining important opportunities following the residency and using the initial work to fuel several years of artistic development. The residencies are perfect for artists who have an idea for a project that they want to develop. Information on previous Platform Residencies can be found here – http://www.sitegallery.org/?s=platform

NEW OLD explores the potential for design and designers to enhance the experience of our later lives.
About the exhibition
As our population ages rapidly, the exhibition looks at how design can help people lead fuller, healthier and more rewarding lives into old age, asking the question: how can designers meet the challenge of a rapidly ageing society? From robotic clothing to driverless cars, this exhibition rethinks design approaches to ageing.
Curated by Jeremy Myerson, Helen Hamlyn Professor of Design at the Royal College of Art, and sponsored by the Helen Hamlyn Trust and AXA PPP healthcare, the exhibition is organised into six sections - Ageing, Identity, Home, Community, Working and Mobility.
Each section will feature a special design commission by a leading designer or design team, creating new solutions for demographic change as well as addressing the challenges’ of ages. New projects by Yves Béhar /fuseproject, Konstantin Grcic, Future Facility, Special Projects, IDEO and Priestman Goode will feature in the show. NEW OLD examines how innovation and design can reimagine how we live the later stages of our lives.

When The Farrier Comes To Town

 Ian, the stable's farrier is a shy guy, but I got him to kick on his portable forge for y'all and allow us a quick peek inside his trailer. He said it's a mess inside and he's sorry about that. Lol! Like we don't know what metal working looks…See More
