‘Connecting Values: Exploring Co-Creation Through Making’ Exhibition

17 May - 4 June 2021

Swiss Cottage Gallery, London

In 2019 K2 Academy was invited to participate in Camden Alive Project, a programme of arts and cultural events that celebrates the people of Camden and captures the sights, sounds and spirit of the borough. K2’s founders and directors, Katrin Spranger and Kelvin Birk, were commissioned to develop their own art projects with Camden residents and K2 students based on their stories and chosen theme of ‘value’. This cultural exchange culminated in creating an electroformed fountain and crushed-stone neckpiece which were first exhibited at the British Museum in March 2020. We had a wonderful time working with all the participants who brought a great deal of creativity and dedication into the project!

We are pleased to announce that this project will be showcased again at the Swiss Cottage Gallery in the exhibition ‘Connecting Values: Exploring co-creation through making’, which will be open to the public 17 May - 4 June 2021.

The exhibition displays artworks that have at their heart a collaborative process. Each communicates a journey in jewellery making, expressing something to its intended wearer, whether personal, political or conceptual; a message chosen to be displayed, used, worn, celebrated and valued. The participants learned about the jewellery making and sculptural techniques used by Katrin and Kelvin in their work during a series of workshops between 2019 and 2020. Each created an individual piece of jewellery and then co-created a larger piece led by either Katrin or Kelvin.
