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.
