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.

The sixth annual Wooda Arts Award gives a contemporary artist the opportunity of a six-week residency in an architect-designed studio in North Cornwall. The award is open to solo and collaborative artists working in any medium who have a strong commitment to experimentation

The bursary is for £1,800 with a small allowance for UK travel and materials, as well as two-bedroomed cottage accommodation and use of the studio for six weeks from 4th February – 18th March 2012 (possibility of 1 week leeway either side.) In exchange, we require a donation of one or two works to the Wooda Arts archive and a documented report on the residency process and its outcomes.

 

The closing date for applications is 14th October 2011.

Any applications received after that date will not be considered.

A shortlist of up to five candidates will be invited to interview at Wooda on 27th/28th October 2011. Travel expenses from within the UK will be paid.

Studios to Let

Are you highly motivated and developing high quality contemporary crafts?

Would your practice benefit from studio space and are you looking for somewhere to develop your business along side other makers?  

Opened in 2007, Making Space comprises 7 start-up studios for designer-crafts and visual artists and 2 fully equipped teaching spaces for jewellery and ceramics.  

Making Space is a charity with an emphasis on good quality and original contemporary visual arts.   Current tenants' art forms include: jewellery, glass, ceramics, painting, digital media, photography, textiles and illustration.

Applications are welcome from makers who are ready to take their work to the next stage of business development.  This includes makers who have completed their formal training to those currently working at home who feel their practice would benefit from being produced in a studio setting. A selection of good quality images of recent work and a 2 year business plan should be provided.

Studios are available for up to two years initially, with an option to renew the lease for a further 2 years or more. Studios are approximately 16sqm and depending on the art form, can accommodate up to 3 people sharing (at £125 per month) or one person (£200 per month).

The newly organised Vilém Flusser Residency Programme supports projects and activities which are simultaneously conceptual and practice-based. The programme is geared towards the initiation of new research or to the further development of existing projects. This is not a production grant and while a public presentation/event will be expected, there is no pressure to present finished works. Where applicable, the support of publications, exhibitions, interventions and other results of the residency may be negotiated on a project to project basis. Special priority will be given to young and/or emerging artist-researchers.

 

 

RESIDENCY

The program starts from April 2012 on as a 2 month work-and research-residency in Berlin. The applicant selected by the jury will have the oppportunity to further develop the submitted project during the time of the residency. The program includes:

 travel costs to Berlin

 accomodation costs in Berlin

 stipend of 1000 EUR per month

 studio / workspace in the Flusser Archive at the University of Arts (UDK) in Berlin.

 

Further details of the project presentation at the transmediale festival and Flusser Archive will be negotiated directly with the applicant.

Ex Lab is inviting expressions of interest from visual arts, craft and media artists for 5 specific commissions plus a number of 'open brief' opportunities as part of the Ex Lab programme. The commissions offer a supported research period, fee, production and installation costs to create site responsive work for temporary installation at outdoor and indoor locations on the coast and in galleries and non-arts venues across Dorset.
