Artfutures: Working with Contradictions in Higher Arts Education 

In 2011, the European League of Institutes of the Arts (ELIA) was awarded an
Operating Grant through the Cultural Programme of the European Commission.
This grant supported the ongoing activities of ELIA for three years and allowed the
development of a range of new initiatives. Artfutures: Working with Contradictions in Higher Arts Education features a selection of papers – some commissioned, some presented at ELIA conferences – which have been made possible by the European Commission’s grant.

ArtFutures brings together leading arts practitioners, educators and thinkers that are key players in the current cultural paradigm because they are actively creating the future cultural landscape. They come from across 14 countries and a variety of disciplines and their contributions address the most pressing issues in higher arts education from the perspective of those operating within the field.
