Members of the HERA-funded project Creativity and Craft Production in Middle and Late Bronze Age Europe (CinBA) (www.cinba.net) co-ordinated by myself are getting ready for the forthcoming international conference Creativity: An Exploration Through the Bronze Age and Contemporary Responses to the Bronze Age to be held on 10th-11th April 2013 at Magdalene College, University of Cambridge, UK. There is a fantastic line up of speakers drawn from all across Europe (www.cinba.net/conference). To coincide with the conference a new exhibition of contemporary craft will be opening at the Museum of Archaeology and Anthropology, Cambridge. The exhibition Creativity In The Bronze Age – A Response. Work by Mary Butcher, Susan Kinley, Helen Marton, Syann van Niftrik, Julian Stair, Sheila Teague and Gary Wright showcases the work of some of the best-known contemporary British artists/designers who have been working with CinBA since May 2012.
The conference and exhibition promise to be very exciting events. Registration for the conference is open until 3rd April (£58 students; £68 full registration) so there is still time to book a place if you would like to come along. Hope to see you there!
