The European League of Institutes of the Arts - ELIA is pleased to announce the 7th ELIA Teachers’ Academy - ENACT: Learning in/through the Arts, hosted by Fontys School of Fine and Performing Arts, which brings together lecturers from Higher Arts Education across Europe and beyond.

The 3 day programme offers keynote speeches, presentations, workshops and panel discussions. The in-depth exchange of ideas at the ELIA Teachers’ Academy in Tilburg will provide a critical framework for informed discussions as well as a professional networking.

ENACT: Learning in/through the Arts
Making and teaching the arts are practices that intervene in a specific way, both in education and in society at large. The arts practice has its own knowledge base and logic; it evolves by creating and doing . The same can be said about education where learning environments are created by teachers and students in the work and on the spot. On the one hand we see how art educators bring artistic strategies into schools and higher arts institutions. This way of learning in/through the arts requires a distinct set of competences and habits of mind. On the other hand we see how artists and designers introduce educational practices to their artistic work, be it in the studio, the museum, the public space or on stage.

Call for Presentations, Papers and Workshops
Deadline 15 December 2014

For the 7th Elia Teachers’ Academy we invite artists, art professors and art educators to showcase their own practices in the arts and education, be it in a presentation, a pecha kucha, a workshop, or another suitable format. What are the specificities of artistic strategies employed in teaching and learning, and what kind of educational practices do artists use to put their work into action?

The ELIA Teachers’ Academy 2015 will address the following themes:
• Theme 1; Artistic Strategies in Education
