The NEW NOW Festival is an innovative international platform for talented graduating artists (or those who have recently graduated) – coming out of Higher Arts Education Institutions and Universities across Europe and beyond – to present themselves to a wider international audience within a professional arts context.

Artists (as individuals or groups) are nominated, by their institution, within one of the following five discipline categories:

Visual Arts | Design | Theatre/Dance | Music/Sound | Film

Online application will be open from 3 May 2011.

ArtFutures - Current issues in higher arts education

The new ELIA publication brings together contributions by arts educators and thinkers from eight countries and a variety of disciplines. Together, these papers provide an insight into current debates in higher arts education and the role of ELIA within this field.

ArtFutures will be distributed to all ELIA members next month.

Update on European Cultural Policy

This paper is meant to update the ELIA members and board on current issues and developments in European policy relevant to higher arts education in Europe. Crucial points include the place of culture in the EU growth strategy 'Europe 2020', the establishment of a European Skills Council for the Cultural and Creative Industries, the consultation for a new Culture Programme 2013-2020, and the follow-up on the Green Paper.

It is a particularly busy time in European policy terms, not only because of the many initiatives in the frame of the new 2020 strategy but also because the new programming period 2013-2020 is being prepared, in which all European programmes will be revised. Consequently, the logic of the previous period does not necessarily apply anymore from 2013. The EU's growth strategy ‘Europe 2020’ for a ‘smart, sustainable and inclusive economy’ is already operational.

These eleven points attempt to summarise what is currently going on in Brussels in culture, education, research, enterprise, employment and Structural Funds, and what we can expect in the coming years.
