Online registration is now open 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:
