Thank you to all keynote speakers, presenters and delegates of the 7th ELIA Leadership Symposium for a fantastic event!
The 7th ELIA Leadership Symposium kicked off on Tuesday with a Welcome Cocktail; facilitating networking between ELIA delegates and representatives of African Universities who came together in Cape Town for the preceding African Tertiary Arts Education networking event.
The second day was all about in-depth round table discussions, fueled by the opening keynote talk of Vishakha Desai, a panel session between Xolela Mangcu and Mark Fleishman, as well as a panel session between Emma Wolukau-Wanambwa, Maude Dikobe and Ruth Simbao. Closing keynote of the day was Aino Laberenz, who established The African Opera Village in Burkina Fasso with her late partner Christoph Schlingensief. In the evening dinner took place at Spier Wine Farm in the Stellenbosch Valley.
The final day started with a keynote by Gavin Jantjes, followed by discussions and the closing session of Oussama Rifahi.
