Maintaining Purpose

IAC’s 13th Annual Gold + Diamond Conference
July 17 – 19, 2023

New York, NY

Join Initiatives in Art and Culture for a wide-ranging look at the industry employing jewelry as a lens. In addition to considering the centrality of jewelry to culture and as historical document, we will discuss precious substances and their use, a broadened definition of natural resources to include cultural traditions and skills, new technologies, comparative approaches to extraction (for example, artisanal vs. larger-scale mining), and what constitutes (and how to achieve) ethical sourcing and responsible practice. We will also present IAC’s 6th annual award for Leadership in Responsible Practice and 3rd annual award for Outstanding Contributions to the Diamond and Jewelry Industries.

Maintaining Purpose will take place in New York City, July 17 – 19, 2023. To receive updates on the program, including registration and venue information, please complete the form below.
