APPLY TO PARTICIPATE IN NYC JEWELRY WEEK 2024

Join us for the 7th annual NYC Jewelry Week, a city-wide festival that takes place from November 18-24, 2024. We invite the jewelry community to be part of this celebration, focusing on consumer education and innovation. Through the Open Call, we welcome thoughtfully planned proposals from artists, designers, curators, and retailers for exhibitions, talks, pop-up retail events, and other interactive consumer-focused events. Activities take place both in-person and virtually during NYCJW24.

We’re seeking innovative and meaningful proposals that present concrete ideas to showcase beautifully crafted jewelry. Furthermore, engaging activities that tell compelling stories and shape the past, present, and future of jewelry are also welcome. Additionally, it’s important to keep in mind that we cater to a diverse audience of individuals with an interest in both jewelry and art. The activities chosen for NYCJW24 are predominantly free of charge and open to the public.

Questions? Refer to our FAQs for additional insights.

Do you have a space available to host designers or an event during NYCJW24? Interested in sponsoring a talk or exploring other creative partnership opportunities? Reach out to programs@nycjewelryweek.com and let us know!

Please note: NYCJW24 is not a trade fair and activities are not confined to a show area. Instead, activities are spread across the city in a myriad of venues! NYC Jewelry Week doesn’t provide space. However, successful proposals may receive introductions to potential venues. We’re not accepting submissions to exhibit individual pieces of jewelry.

Limitations

NYC Jewelry Week is a curated program and cannot accept all proposals. We will not consider submissions that do not target a broad audience of jewelry enthusiasts.

  • Niche or industry-specific activities may not be suitable, as we seek broad applicability.
  • We may not accept technical or specialized submissions as we prioritize making content accessible to a general audience.
  • Activities misaligned with NYC Jewelry Week’s values won’t be considered; we aim to identify activities aligning with our organization’s goals and values.
