NEU NOW 2017 in Amsterdam has wrapped but the spotlight on emerging artists continues as NEU NOW 2017 Online Launches!

Ninth edition of arts festival closes on a high note.

NEU NOW, the international arts festival presenting Europe's emerging artists, aptly described by the press as the bridge between the academy and the professional arts industries, closed its doors after a successful ninth edition, which welcomed 46 artists from 16 countries in Amsterdam at the Westergasfabriek from 14-17 September.

Visitors, arts professionals and students were extremely enthusiastic about the quality of the works on show and the diversity of the performances and film programme.

A selection of photos from this year's festival can be found on the NEU NOW Facebook page here.

NXT Conference: Wrap-up and Photos

ELIA and the NXT Project Team would like to thank all delegates, speakers and the host, the Amsterdam University of the Arts, and particularly the Academy of Theater and Dance.

With 118 delegates from 26 countries, the NXT Conference was an engaging 2-day programme revolving around the theme Making a Living from the Arts

The feedback and material collected from the sessions is an invaluable contribution to a position paper which aims to advice EU policymakers on the role of higher arts education institutions, funding schemes for artists, researchers and professionals in the cultural and creative sector. More about the position paper will be published on the ELIA website in due time.

Here is a selection of photos from the NXT Conference.


NXT Workshops on Making a Living from the Arts

The NXT Project, co-funded by the Creative Europe Programme, organized in the context of the NXT Conference, a series of workshops for the NEU NOW 2017 artists. 

In the frame of the overall topic Making a Living from the Arts, the workshops covered various topics as career strategy development, finding potential value of an artistic practice, personal and communication skills development, basic financial tools for cultural projects, how to select and apply for a residency programme.

The NXT Project Team would like to thank all NEU NOW artists for their active and enthusiastic participation and the workshop leaders for their enery and professionalism.

ELIA Handover: a historic moment 

‘To live, in general, is a challenge. The best you can do is to make the most if it’. Carla jokingly adds, ‘ I did that for instance by creating my own job!'.

The handover between Carla Delfos and Maria Hansen took place on 15 September during a festive celebration at the Westergastheater. It was a historic moment and a joyous occasion. It was also a moment for the incoming Executive Director, Maria Hansen, to present herself for the first time the ELIA network.

See the photos and read more about the event here.


Carla Delfos received Andreaspenning distinction
When Amsterdam Deputy Mayor, Kajsa Ollongren, took to the stage at the ELIA Handover ceremony, it was truly a surprise act for everyone present.
The night revolved around Carla Delfos’ farewell and the handover of her responsibilities to the new Executive Director, Maria Hansen.
Kajsa Ollongren took to the stage and handed Carla the Andreaspenning distinction in honour of her lifetime dedication to arts and culture in the city of Amsterdam, and as we all know, in Europe and beyond.

Europe City Culture

On the occasion of ELIA founder Carla Delfos farewell, a roundtable discussion was initiated by a group of intellectuals, artists,
politicians, academics and journalists, amongst others, Hedy d’Ancona, former Minister of Welfare, Health and Culture and MEP.

The roundtable critically examined and compared the state of affairs of arts education when ELIA started in 1990 and now, extrapolating to the future. The observations made during this discussion are published in a booklet entitled Europe City Culture, available in digital format on the ELIA website.
