ELIA is delighted to announce that the 7th ELIA Leadership Symposium hosted by The African Arts Institute will be held in Cape Town, South Africa from 1-4 December 2015.

The ELIA Leadership Symposium brings together influential leaders from higher arts education institutions and universities across the globe for an important and timely discussion on current issues in leadership in higher arts education.

Post-apartheid South Africa is a laboratory of social transformation. Working within this context we will address this changing world and reflect on how key notions of 'the canon', aesthetics and standards of excellence play out in a culturally diverse world.

The ELIA Leadership Symposium: Dominance. Diversity. Disruption. starts Tuesday 1 December with a welcome cocktail for delegates to meet representatives of African Art Universities. From Wednesday 2 – Friday 4 December the programme offers round table discussions, based on input from high profile speakers, including the renowned academic and writer Njabulo Ndebele and the Executive Director of the Arab Fund for Arts and Culture Oussama Rifahi. Furthermore, different options to visit and engage with cultural institutions in Cape Town, performances, dinners and receptions in various historic venues will be organised.
