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.

Real to Reel: The Craft Film Festival is the first UK festival dedicated to craft and moving image.
 
Now in its fourth year, the festival continues its mission to highlight the sheer depth and scope of craft from around the globe. We’re inviting submissions for the 2019 edition, which will once again coincide with London Craft Week and screen at partner venue Picturehouse Central, London, in early May, followed by an international tour.
 
Submissions are now open. All genres are encouraged, from documentaries, to story-led films to animation: if your film explores making, skills and materials, in the broadest sense, our selection panel would like to see it. The Crafts Council is committed to promoting and celebrating diversity. We particularly encourage applications from currently under-represented groups in contemporary craft, including disabled applicants and applicants from black, Asian and minority ethnic backgrounds.

The Government has appointed a new Creative Industries Trade and Investment Board that will aim to increase creative industries’ exports by 50 per cent by 2023. A further £1 million of government funding is to promote the ‘best of British’ creativity abroad. Rosy Greenlees, Crafts Council Executive Director, has been appointed to the board. The Crafts Council’s Supporting makers to export: survey findings 2018 shows that 32% of respondents’ sales are now from international work, compared to 25% of makers surveyed last year. This is one of a number of ways in which the Crafts Council supports makers to export.

"The government’s focus on the narrow EBacc to the detriment of the study of arts and creative subjects in schools, is not only impacting on the creative industries, but on scientific study as well... "
 
 
"Rosie Wolfenden founded Tatty Devine with Harriet Vine in in 1999; they were both awarded an MBE for Services to the Fashion Industry in 2013. She comments:
 
‘First and foremost Harriet and I are artists, we also employ 30 people and contribute meaningfully to the British economy. We wouldn’t have done this without creativity throughout our education. The creative industries are vital to Britain, so watching the curriculum be stripped of creativity simply makes no sense.’"
