Intro
Open call - The World We Want is the theme of the third edition of f-utility jewelry. We invite everybody to put their best efforts and ideas into this event, convinced as we are that our art can offer many thoughts for reflection while at the same time it can contribute in real terms to the support of one of the Emergency hospitals.
The World We Want is the theme of the third edition of f-utility jewelry. Once again, a social and political theme in the broadest sense of the word to support Emergency’s activities through our doing, our knowing, our feeling and only at the end (consequently), our saying. Once again, in fact, the participants’ hand-made work will have to be accompanied by a short sentence to be published in the catalog and displayed during the exhibition.

Emergency’s policy is one of “doing”, and this same policy of doing (in actual fact) will be the one in which all the participants in the project – associations, authors, buyers, institutional bodies, organizers, sponsors and anyone else – will work together to ensure the event’s maximum success. The artisan/artist’s ethic of “doing” should concern everybody: doing something well to satisfy oneself and others, and not merely for profit. For we organizers the A ...B ...C of the previous events is today a 1 ...2 ...3 rich in meaning, with its own history, “growing together” towards mutual trust, in an open comparison of that which is already somehow related to the theme put forward.

However, the world we want is also a theme open to our interpretation and therefore, not only a theme that is political but also one that involves our deepest emotions, our daily relations and last but not least our ability to change. We often live in conflict, with ourselves and with the others, what then is the basis needed to perceive the other differently, no longer and not solely as an “enemy”?

Jewelry pieces are then like pages open onto the world we want, or artist’s books like small jewels to be “read” or observed. And what world do you want?

We invite everybody to put their best efforts and ideas into this event, convinced as we are that our art can offer many thoughts for reflection while at the same time it can contribute in real terms to the support of one of the Emergency hospitals.

Our support of Goderich Children’s Centre in Sierra Leone continues forward in baby steps. We would like this initiative to once more enjoy the broadest support and that contemporary jewelry, this year together with artist’s books, is able to communicate other things and continue on the path started. Between saying and doing let’s get down to work and stake everything on this initiative because we are what we do and not only what we say. Emergency, the recipient of all the auction proceedings, is a humanitarian organization established in 1994 to offer free high quality medical-surgical care to the civilian victims of wars, anti-personnel mines and poverty. It has been active in Sierra Leone since November 2001.
