From 25-27 September at the 2019 ELIA Academy, over 140 delegates engaged in conversations around tools, applications, dilemmas and understandings of digitality in higher arts education.
We looked into practical methods to help our students and institutions manage their interactions with digitality in its many forms. We realised that, more than ever, the process of making sense and of critical thinking should be at the core of our teaching. We turned our focus towards the stories we want to tell and why they are important, rather than getting distracted by which digital platform we should use.
We warmly thank the delegates of the ELIA Academy 2019 for their involvement, and we thank our speakers, presenters and our hosts for making this an extraordinary event. View highlight photos from the event here and the announced NEU NOW digital publication here.

From 24-25 September, Challenges of Doctoral Supervision took place in Stuttgart, Germany. The event was the first step in the frame of the Erasmus Plus Strategic Partnership Project Advancing Supervision for Artistic Research Doctorates.
Delegates from 22 countries involved in all levels of artistic supervision joined the hands-on workshop sessions and had many networking opportunities.
The delegates, speakers and moderators, workshop leaders and the organising team exchanged valuable input on specific aspects of doctoral supervision in the arts, setting a promising future and outcome for the project.
See photos from the event here and stay tuned for updates and following steps of the Advancing Supervision for Artistic Research Doctorates project! A warm thank to the Erasmus Plus programme for co-funding an important step to advance supervision in artistic research.

ELIA is organising a Global Seminar in collaboration with ICFAD – International Council of Fine Arts Deans, kindly hosted by ELISAVA Barcelona School of Design and Engineering.
This international event brings together leaders of higher arts education institutions from North America and Europe and in this frame, we will address the challenging role of the Arts in an Era of Populism, what are its implications and which alternative strategies can we imagine. While the political landscape is ever-changing, the current trend of populism brings forward many questions about how politics affect arts and design, and its teaching. What opportunities can this open up for us and do we have to reframe education?
Registration is now open for the Global Seminar, which will take place on 8 and 9 of June 2020 in Barcelona, and is open to members of ELIA and ICFAD. Find out more here.
