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.

ACJ’s sixth International Conference will be held in July 2022 at Exeter University, and this will mark the

25th anniversary of the association.

We are seeking a Conference Organiser to design and implement an exciting programme of speakers, presentations, workshops, the party, and other elements, working with the ACJ Conference Team.

The Organiser will have experience of managing exciting events within the field of contemporary jewellery, and will have a wide knowledge of the current international state of the artform.

We are looking for someone with imagination, flair and excellent contacts. You will be well organized, a good team player, confident in communication both written and verbal.

This is a temporary contract and you will be self-employed. We are fundraising and there will be a decent rate of pay.

The Conference will include a wide spread of interesting items both academic and more practical. As well as presentations, there could be workshops, break-out group items, performances, and there will definitely be a party!

During the conference weekend we will have team members and volunteers available to help with the many practical tasks of a conference.
