During this era of uncertainty, characterized by a vortex of change, Initiatives in Art and Culture (IAC) explores the underpinnings of gold's abiding emotional power, allure, and enduring value. Taking a wide-ranging look at gold and with a focus on jewelry, IAC considers artistry and techniques; means of purveying adornment in the marketplace; the regulatory climate regarding jewels and the metal itself, and ways of ensuring that this cornerstone of humanity’s definition of the aesthetic is sourced and traded ethically and with an undergirding concern for social and environmental sustainability. IAC's Gold Conference annually brings together representatives from all communities and disciplines to engage in a multi-faceted exploration of the power and meaning of gold.
