British Library jewellery designer in residence competition
If you are a designer or maker, we can help you from inspiration to successfully commercialising and protecting your ideas. To help tell this story, we are partnering with Artquest to launch the Library’s first ever jewellery designer in residence programme.
We are looking for an experienced jeweller to spend six months at the Library. You will have the chance to come up with a new piece of work inspired by our collections, following which, we will help you to commercialise it through our Business & IP Centre.
You could be inspired by any area of the collections, from sound recordings to comics and maps. In the Centre you can learn about intellectual property to understand how to protect your work, and also put you in touch with partners who can help with marketing, sales, manufacturing and distribution.
The successful applicant will also receive a bursary of £3,000.
The deadline for the competition is Monday 9 July 2012.
