Happier Together: NEU NOW and ELIA's Teachers' Academy

The NEU NOW LIVE Festival will be held in conjunction with the 5th edition of the Teachers' Academy.



What is the NEU NOW Festival?

The NEU NOW Festival has established itself as an innovative platform for talented graduating or recent graduate artists – coming out of Higher Arts Education Institutions and Universities across Europe and beyond – to present themselves to a wider international audience within professional contexts.

The NEU NOW festival is:

  • an online festival and a live event that promotes artistic excellence through cutting edge presentations and activities in a range of art disciplines;

  • an opportunity for selected emerging artists to show their work, meet each other and create new international partnerships;

  • a place where audiences, producers and curators can see the most excellent artists and innovative projects coming from art schools and universities across Europe and beyond;
  • a forum where artists, producers, curators, cultural operators and policy makers can discuss future developments for the arts and share views on the cultural role of higher arts education institutions;
  • a means of presenting new international generation of professional artists to the attention of a wide audience.

From the nominated projects, a range of projects have been chosen to be presented online, from which a selection of projects will also be presented in the NEU NOW LIVE Festival 2012.

Who is participating?

The NEU NOW Festival is open to graduating arts students and recent graduates (within one year of graduation) of Higher Arts Institutions and Universities who are ELIA members, ELIA associate members and ELIA non-European members.
Students/graduates (as individuals or groups) are nominated, by their institution, within one of the following five discipline categories:
