Browse the fully interactive Biennial Conference Registration Brochure to discover all that the LOCATION/AESTHETICS programme has to offer.

The 13th ELIA Biennial Conference, hosted by the Royal Conservatoire of Scotland and The Glasgow School of Art, 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:


During the plenary sessions a distinguished roster of Keynote Speakers will draw out these themes. The Keynote Speakers are:

Pier Luigi Sacco
Professor of Cultural Economics and Deputy Rector for International Affairs at IULM University in Milan, Director of Siena its candidacy for the European Capital of Culture 2019 and Scientific Director of the Fondazione Campus. 

Geoffrey Crossick
Distinguished Professor of the Humanities in the School of Advanced Study, University of London and Director of the AHRC Cultural Value Project. 

Josette Bushell-Mingo
Artistic director for The Swedish National Touring Theatre ensemble, Co-Founder PUSH, Officer of the Order of the British Empire and board member of the Swedish Film Institute.

Martin Boyce
Scottish sculptor and mulimedia installation artist, Turner Prize Winner 2011.

ELIA NEW NOW Festival 2014
& The ELIA Biennial Glasgow:
A Perfect Pairing

The European League of Institutes of the Arts received hundreds of nominations from art institutions across the world for NEW NOW 2014, from which an international jury selected 65 projects from 23 countries to be part of the ELIA NEW NOW Online Festival.

In a second jury selection, 28 projects from across 13 countries were selected from the 65 to be part of the ELIA NEW NOW LIVE Festival taking place 12-16 November 2014 in Glasgow, UK.

The ELIA NEW NOW Festival is an innovative international platform and showcase for talented graduating students and recent graduates (within one year of graduation) – of Higher Arts Education Institutions and Universities across Europe and beyond – to present themselves to a wide international audience.

Artists (as individuals or groups) were nominated, by their (former) institution, within one of the following five disciplines:
+ Visual Arts
+ Design/Architecture
+ Theatre/Dance
+ Music/Sound
+ Film/Animation

The international judging panel of experts, representing each of the five arts disciplines, selected work for the online festival on the basis of the following criteria - work that:

• engages with, and makes a bold contribution to, leading edge practice in the international field of the discipline
• demonstrates clear potential as work that is likely to achieve a good professional standard of presentation
• is likely to stimulate the interest of promoters, curators, festival organisers and/or producers working in the professional field of the discipline
• is suitable for presentation and is likely to stimulate the interest of an international audience
• together with the other work selected within the discipline, contributes to the presentation of a diverse range within the category.

Participation on Trial Conference
Amsterdam 10-11 October 2014
Last Chance to Register!

The international conference on participatory art entitled 'Participation on Trial' will be held by Castrum Peregrini in Amsterdam from 10-11 October 2014.

All speakers and participants get a specific role: as judge, prosecutor, lawyer, witness or external expert. Taking up these roles they will discuss all the arguments in a playful but serious manner.

The second day will focus on the practice of participation: how to do it? Which approach works and which does not? The toolkit that was developed in the TimeCase project will be launched and some inspiring case studies will be presented and discussed.
