It's In Our Hands - The Future of Ethical Making in Scotland
From: 07/02/2017 To: 07/02/2017 10:00 - 17:00
Location: Scrymgeour Building, Park Place, University of Dundee, Dundee DD1 4HN
This Symposium on Ethical Making is aimed primarily at jewellers and silversmiths but is relevant to makers of all disciplines who have an interest in adopting an ethical approach in their practice.
The day will be animated by a fantastic panel of speakers, including Greg Valerio MBE, award-winning British fair trade ethical jeweller and environmental activist; jeweller Ute Decker; silversmith Karen Westland; researcher Dr Peter Oakley; jeweller and ethical consultant Vivien Johnston and Edinburgh Assay Master Scott Walter.
You will consider the importance of an ethical approach to making; what it can bring to your practice; what hurdles exist and how these can be overcome; and two exciting opportunities that exist in Scotland today: Scotgold and the Circular Economy.
The Symposium is free to attend and includes tea and coffee on arrival and an opportunity to continue the conversation over drinks at the end of the day. There will be a lunch break and delegates are asked to provide their own lunch.
The Symposium will run from 10am to 5pm on Tuesday 7 February 2017.
