The Exchange Project is a collaborative effort between students from the Sydney College of the Arts: Jewellery + Object Design course and the Whitireia Community Polytechnic: Bachelor of Applied Art Jewellery students in New Zealand.

Students from each course were asked to select one material and construct a piece of writing and swap them with one of their counterparts across the Tasman Sea to inspire them to create one, or a small series of, jewellery works as a direct response to the both the writing and the material.

 The results of this lively and inspiring exchange will be shown in an exhibition curated by lecturers from SCA and Whitireia at Studio 20/17 from the 6th July- 18th July 2010, with celebration drinks on Saturday 10 July from 4-6pm

Stay tuned for more… in the meantime you can follow the progress of the project in the lead up to the exhibition on The Exchange Project blog:
