Volker Atrops (Rheurd/D, 2009), Nora Rochel (Karlsruhe/D, 2013) and Eunmi Chun (Munich/D/Korea, 2016) were Erfurt City Goldsmiths in past years. The title will be awarded again in 2020.
After a public invitation to tender and the jury’s decision, the office of City Goldsmith will be filled from May 1 to July 31, 2020. For this period, the city goldsmith will receive a scholarship totaling 4,000 euros. A furnished apartment and a goldsmith’s atelier in the municipal artist’s workshops will be made available free of charge. A PC with Internet access is available in the guest apartment. The City Goldsmith will live and work in Erfurt during this period, cultivate contacts with jewelry designers in the city and region, and update the public online about his or her work.
The guideline for the title Erfurt City Goldsmith was published as a city council resolution in the official gazette of the city of Erfurt. Here is the link
