What a fantastic opportunity!
I found a post for Romanian Jewellery Week 2023 on Instagram and decided to apply.
My application was successful.
I am exhibiting 11 sustainably produced, contemporary jewellery pieces in Romanian Jewellery Week 2023 from October 4th to 8th. Im so excited!
The exhibition will take place in the National Library of Romania, Bucharest.
I am also hoping to be there in person and participate in industry activities during that time with other international jewellers in Bucharest.
I have applied for Creative NSW Small Projects Funding to get me part of the way there as I'm already going to be in Europe at that time.
The event will include a wide selection of museums, galleries, designer showrooms and schools that will host dedicated activities, such as workshops, lectures, discussions openings and other exhibitions.
It is a significant career opportunity to exhibit more of my work in Europe.
I am looking to use this opportunity to network and open exhibiting opportunities outside Australia.
By being there I can discuss sustainability principles with international makers; source sustainable materials, find project collaborators; be referred to other international events; experience a new cultural and contemporary world as part of a group in the jewellery Industry; be inspired by other jewellers: gather ideas and new techniques from attending workshops and lectures to inform new work and new projects.
Wish Me Luck!
