ELIA Afternoon


Find out what ELIA working groups have developed in the past months and take part in the conversation.

Teaching How to Make a Living from the Arts

This session will focus on sharing experiences and knowledge on existing and emerging approaches on how to support students in their artistic career development.
What are the skills that artists need in order to make a living from their artistic practice? Are Higher Arts Education institutions integrating these skills into the curriculum or are these taught in extra-curricular programmes?
In this session, we share insights from the project NXT Making a Living from the Arts and engage in conversation with ELIA members.

Arts in Education

ELIA and AEC have established a working group on art in (primary and secondary) education. This group has done a quick scan of how art, design and the performing arts are being taught at this level across Europe and is engaged in the discussion about key competences and the creation of a European Area of Education and Culture by 2025. The working group will discuss its findings with the delegates and is looking forward to a good conversation with those present.

Quality Assurance in cooperation with EQ-Arts

This session provides tools to arts universities to use their potential in critical reflection and innovative reasoning to come up with alternate and more development-oriented approaches to Quality Assurance and Quality Enhancement.

Artistic Research Working Group: What can the city / what can Europe do to make Artistic Research resilient? Focus Supervision

The workshop will start off with input by members of the ELIA working group on artistic research: What has happened since the presentation and publication of the "Florence Principles on the Doctorate in the Arts" in 2016? Under the lead of the Academy of Fine Arts Vienna the group was successful in securing EU-money for a 3-year project focussing on "Advancing Supervision for Artistic Research Doctorates", which has started in September 2018. The workshop will present the main questions of the project, give an overview of the work packages and open up the space for a discussion on the key issue of "supervision" in third cycle artistic research programmes. The topic of the city will concern us during the workshop only peripherally in the sense as cities are usually the contexts in which universities and thus doctoral programmes take place.

EU Funding

This interactive workshop will provide up to date information on European funding programmes and policies. Participants will learn more about taking part in calls and building a strong consortium.

Evaluation Models HAE Institutions

Models to assess the outcome of teaching and research – be it rankings, indicators or peer reviews – have become highly influential not only for ranking universities worldwide, but also for the funding schemes applied to these institutions. Higher art education is increasingly affected by this development. At the same time, the models used to judge higher arts education are usually not fit to give valid information on these institutions. In the ELIA community, there is a controversial debate going on whether to abstain from these issues altogether or to explore ways in which adequate criteria could be found to actually assess higher arts education institutions. ELIA recently created a working group to work on this topic which will report on its work in this session.
