Intro
The 20:20 Visions Conference will feature a diverse mix of academic and artist papers, performances, demos and a practical hands-on element with the aim of providing a framework for a discussion on and around contemporary jewellery within the UK and worldwide.
By examining its past, celebrating present achievements and looking forward, we can then begin to explore what the future of contemporary jewellery might hold.
One of our themes is to examine making in the extraordinary current political climate: does contemporary jewellery have something to say? How have makers reacted, adapted and sought to engage with recent massive shifts and changes in society?

Spread over three days the conference will offer an opportunity for discussion, engagement and debate across a broad spectrum of the contemporary jewellery discipline, which will coincide with our major touring exhibition of the same title. The 20:20 Visions exhibition shows the best of the new jewellery and conveys progression in design and techniques over the last twenty years. Together both conference and exhibition celebrate the 20th anniversary of the Association for Contemporary Jewellery.

Speakers include:
Simon Fraser
Norman Cherry
Elizabeth Shaw
Boris Bally
Melissa Cameron
Silvia Weidenbach
Christoph Zellweger
Sian Hindle
Johana Zellmer
Maria Hanson
Dr Cóilín Ó Dubhghaill

The conference will also feature a performance by BY and By a collaboration between Nuala Clooney and Rachael Colley and a presentation of the Flockomania project by Zoe Robertson as well as demonstrations on soldering by Rebecca Skeels; on Haptic 3D modelling by Ann Marie Shillito and the (re)making of tools by Tim Blades.

The 20:20 Visions Conference team are delighted to announce that they will be hosting Roseanne Bartley's Seeding the Cloud project. All delegates will have the opportunity to talk part in this open source, roving environmental jewellery project, which was "devised to activate a creative response to the burgeoning issue of waste plastic within the ;environment”.
