Over 400 participants from 34 countries have joined us in Vienna the 8-10 November 2012 to share fresh insights and experiences on the current state of Higher Arts Education.

New professional contacts, inspiring speeches, fruitful discussions during the Table Talks, a newly elected Board, thematic and discipline sessions organized by the ELIA Members have hopefully left all delegates with good memories of this last edition of the ELIA Biennial Conference.

On this site you can still find information regarding the conference. Photos and videos of the keynote speeches are available here below.

A warm thank you again to all who were there, and we hope to see you all at the 13th ELIA Biennial Conference in Glasgow!
