Artistic Research Across the Fine Arts
SHARE Aarhus seeks to bring together artistic researchers, spatial practitioners, architects, urbanists, planners, designers, artists of all disciplines, musicians, composers, performers, activists, community organisers and city-dwellers to consider the question of the contemporary city as a site of enquiry, debate and political and professional contestation.
In this fourth conference of the SHARE network, dialogue on artistic research education moves further into the question of the key research themes emerging across all arts (architecture, design, visual arts, performing arts, media arts…).

To view the full programme visit the SHARE Conference Aarhus website.

The European League of Institutes of the Arts (ELIA) is pleased to announce that online registration has opened for the 13th ELIA Biennial Conference, hosted by the Royal Conservatoire of Scotland and The Glasgow School of Art in the vibrant and cosmopolitan city of Glasgow.

The ELIA Biennial Conference is the largest conference on higher arts education worldwide, drawing an audience of approximately 500 directors, artists, teachers and thinkers. 

This year’s conference theme focuses on the relationship between the creative and the city and the dynamic interplay between place, culture, creativity and the artist.  Recognising that the arts are both the most local and the most international of activities - proud of their traditions and identity, but at their most exciting when they break down barriers and cross borders, LOCATION/AESTHETICS will explore the cultural, social and economic role that creative individuals and institutions play in creating and transforming a city, regional or national identity and place in the world.

Four sub-themes have been identified to address more specific issues:

ELIA Stands with the Balkans and Glasgow

From everyone at ELIA, our deepest sympathies go out to the victims of the recent severe flooding in the Balkans, particularly the staff and students of our member institutions throughout the region. During this difficult time, ELIA also sends our thoughts to The Glasgow School of Art for the fire that has affected the historic and beloved Charles Rennie Mackintosh building.

The University of Banja Luka in Bosnia and Herzegovina is now accepting financial and material assistance on behalf of the wider community in the area. For more information on how to help please visit their website at www.unibl.org/en or email flooddisaster@unibl.rs

The Glasgow School of Art has established the Mackintosh Building Fire Fund for those wishing to give financial and material assistance.

Please note that the 13th ELIA Biennial 2014, hosted by The Glasgow School of Art and The Royal Conservatoire Scotland, will continue as planned.
