From the Department of Jewellery of the EASD València and the organizing committee of Melting Point Joyeria Contemporània Valencia we see the need to communicate the cancellation of the edition that was due to take place this year 2020, given the situation created worldwide by the COVID-19 pandemic and its impact on public life and culture. The situation of sanitary alarm and confinement declared in almost all the countries in our environment, the uncertainty about when we can return to a certain normality and recover social and cultural life in our countries, discourage us from going ahead with a project whose fundamental axis it’s the “meeting” in the city of València between all those linked to the art and profession of Contemporary or Author Jewelry. We assure you that for us it is a painful decision.
In addition, we have made the decision to announce Melting Point 2022 now, to coincide our meeting, exhibitions, conferences and other activities with València World Capital of Design 2022.
We want to express our gratitude to all the people, jewelers, jewellery schools, collectives, museums, galleries and institutions of the different countries with which we planned to organize all the programmed activities.
