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.

Crafts Council -
Maker survey on the impact of Coronavirus
Nearly 600 makers responded to our survey on the likely economic impact of the Coronavirus crisis on their business. The key issues were access to funding and the need for practical support, access to selling opportunities, and the need for advocacy. Read more detail and the Crafts Council’s plans to address these concerns here. https://craftscouncil.us7.list-manage.com/track/click?u=a47fc1f38d7...

Crafts Council UK - Craft participation call out
Swathes of people are looking for craft ideas as they cope with life in isolation. We want to compile all the brilliant online craft tutorials, workshops, kits and how-to’s that amateur makers can do. If you have content already, or feel you could get creative with your current environment, please email us at comms@craftscouncil.org.uk. We are also keen to hear from anyone who thinks they could create something that could work on TV or radio!

Running professional development online? Promote your online training or networking events FREE during the lockdown

  1. Be sure your online event is about professional development or support for those working in the sector. (Wonderful though they are, we can’t promote all the brilliant online activities and opportunities you are offering to your audiences)
  2. Be sure the event is to take place within the next four weeks
  3. Upload the details as a Premium Event up to 4 weeks on the ArtsProfessional website

The online form asks for billing details, but you can ignore them!  

We simply want you to be able to reach our readers.

We hope that ACJ regional groups will be able to organise digital remote gatherings via Zoom and other platforms, but they will let their members know of any plans.

If you have any projects or ideas for other members, send them to Haru for the e-bulletin - enquiries@acj.org.uk

Very best wishes from the ACJ team
