The more we travel in realms of gold and diamonds, the more we are confronted by urgent challenges. The 2020 international gold and diamond conference takes, as a point of departure, challenges faced at all points on the continuum from production through design and fabrication to sale or investment, and how successfully meeting these challenges requires a respect for materials, craft, and authentic expression, and a commitment to ethical sourcing and responsible practice.  We will bring together a Who’s Who in the gold and diamond communities, including makers, producers, retailers, journalists, financiers, regulators, and environmentalists, in a tour d’horizon of these precious substances.

 


 

Each year, the IAC Gold conference stands out as the premier event for all things gold. The breadth of the...offering and depth of experience of the presenters is without compare. From looking at value, both intrinsic and emotional, to challenging the sources and uses from an ethical and responsible perspective, to exploring design with the masters, to educating and engaging the gold consumer, this event sets the standard. It should be on everyone’s calendar.”

Initiatives in Art and Culture

Initiatives in Arts and Culture (IAC) is an organization committed to educating diverse audiences in the fine, decorative, and visual arts. IAC's primary activities are conferences, publications, and exhibitions. These take an interdisciplinary approach, considering issues related to fabrication, connoisseurship, cultural patrimony, cultural preservation, and the future of culture. Particular areas of emphasis include American painting, the history of frames, the Arts and Crafts movement, the influence of Asian cultures on American fine and decorative art, and the history and future of fashion and materials. IAC’s projects have been supported by a wide array of individual, corporate and foundation funders.
