Jewellery festival includes Flux exhibition and series of city events.
Birmingham jewellery festival Brilliantly Birmingham will return to the city’s Jewellery Quarter for the 11th year next month.
The festival will showcase the work of a wide variety of jewellers at locations throughout the city including the newly reopened Mac at Cannon Hill Park and venues in the Jewellery Quarter.
Growing from an informal group of local designer-makers to a prestigious festival regularly attracting esteemed international designers, this year’s event focuses on the journey of designer-makers and the festival audience. Through a range of exhibitions, seminars and workshops, audiences will be taken on a journey of jewellery-making, from initial concept to finished product.
Birmingham City Council Cabinet Member for Leisure, Sport and Culture Councillor Martin Mullaney said: “Brilliantly Birmingham is renowned for showcasing some of the region’s best creative talent and we are delighted to be supporting new and established contemporary jewellery designers. The city has a rich history of jewellery design and production, particularly in the Jewellery Quarter, where we also have the award-winning Museum of the Jewellery Quarter.”
In addition to the events taking place across the city centre and Jewellery Quarter, Brilliantly Birmingham also includes the fifth annual Flux exhibition of new and emerging designer-makers at Mac.
