Intro
Algures Escola de Joalheria Contemporânea, Brazil, a hybrid school whose objective is to build a solid base through research and development in contemporary jewellery, focusing on Brazilian culture.
Algures Escola de Joalheria Contemporânea was founded in 2022 in Brazil by Alice Floriano, Nina Lima, Nicole Uurbanus and Renata Porto.

We are an independent, hybrid school whose objective is to build a solid base through research and development in contemporary jewellery, focusing on Brazilian culture. Classes offered, theoretical and practical, provide a space for in-depth discussions and construction for those who wish to develop their own expression without giving up the traditional jewellery techniques and ancestral knowledge allied to new technologies. We intend to stimulate critical thinking and experimentation through the creative process, thus preparing students for this market.

Classes are both online and in-person, with long (2 years) and short-term (per semester) Programs, all taught in Portuguese.
 
As Algures will exhibit student work at the 2nd Biennial of Contemporary Jewellery in Lisbon, ‘Joias Políticas. Joias de Poder' (June 2024), the focus in the upcoming semester will be on political musical expression in Brazil.
