The Goldsmiths’ Centre is launching a new initiative for the promotion of its services to young people and underrepresented groups.

The Community Advisory Group, it said, is designed to broaden access to and visibility of its programmes, as well as advising the Centre on how to be more inclusive.

It will consist of ten proactive individuals with experience in education, outreach, grant giving, diversity, programming or marketing, who will meet twice a year intially.

It will support the charity in creating career and development opportunities for those entering and working in the jewellery, silversmithing and allied industries.

The Goldsmiths’ Centre team will be reviewing applications on a rolling basis, with the first deadline on 20 August 2021. The new Community Advisory Group, which is a non-decision-making body, will meet formally for the first time in November 2021.

Those interested in applying or nominating someone should go to the Goldsmiths’ Centre website.

“Across the Goldsmiths’ Centre team we recognise just how important it is to improve equity, diversity, and inclusion across all our programmes and initiatives.

“The Community Advisory Group will play a key role in providing invaluable guidance to make informed decisions and help shape the future around this important area of work,” explained director of the Goldsmiths’ Centre, Peter Taylor.
