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.

Now Fellowship are now open.
 
Based in Nottingham (UK), Near Now is Broadway's studio for arts, design and innovation. We work with artists to make, and make sense of, technology in everyday life.
 
The Near Now Fellowship is our artistic and professional development programme which, through curiosity and discovery, helps pioneering artists to explore and realise bold ideas.
 
See our Studio page for information about previous Near Now Fellows.

NEW DEVELOPMENT
 
Work in Progress – SPACE will be opening 35 studios for artists, makers and creative businesses in Redbridge Town Hall, Ilford. This is a great opportunity for artists working in Redbridge and we are hoping to reach out to local artists looking for studio space. Due to be completed by summer 2019, these studios are on the second and third floor. Please note that although there is lift access, it is not fully DDA compliant. Let us know in your email if you have specific access needs.
 
We welcome all enquiries, open day viewings will be held when building work is completed (summer 2019). Please email redbridge@spacestudios.org.uk with ‘Redbridge Town Hall’ in the subject header to receive updates and information (an update on building progress will be sent in May).
