NYC Jewelry Week Residency Program Now Accepting Applications
The organization has also started a blog.
The NoLo Studios Collective x NYC Jewelry Week Here We Are residency program awards a BIPOC jeweler with a fully furnished space in the NoLo Collective Jewelry Studio.
The NoLo Jewelry Studio is a six-bench fine metalworking studio run by working jewelers.
The recipient will work at the studio for a year free of charge, with a full basic bench setup they can keep at the end of the program. Accordingly, applicants should be proficient in jewelry-making to take advantage of the residency.
They will have access to shared tools, including Oxy-Acetylene torches, a larger smithing torch, industrial standing ARBE polisher, rolling mill, belt sander, high-speed tumbler, pin finishers, an Ultrasonic, and various dapping tools.
Additionally, the accepted resident will have access to NoLo Studios’ list of vendors and resources, as well as photography services.
The program also will work to promote and support the selected jeweler.
They will be included in NYC Jewelry Week’s 2021-2022 Here We Are (HWA) initiative. It includes placement in the 1stDibs x HWA virtual marketplace, access to HWA business development and networking sessions, and an interview featured on NYC Jewelry Week’s platforms.
Interested BIPOC jewelers living in the New York City area should apply here by Sept. 14.
NYC Jewelry Week is also looking for sponsors to help fund the residency. Interested parties may contribute through financial donations, vendor credit donations from industry vendors, and jeweler’s tools.
