Register Now for the ELIA-ICFAD Global Seminar

With multiple messages, features, hidden and evident meanings to be interpreted, populism as a political phenomenon should not only be discussed in the world of politics, but by society in general, and especially in an artistic and creative context.

Therefore, ELIA, together with ICFAD – International Council of Fine Arts Deans, present the 2020 ELIA-ICFAD Global Seminar, taking place from 8-9 June 2020 at ELISAVA Barcelona School of Design and Engineering.

This event will bring together leaders of higher arts education institutions from North America and Europe to debate, discuss and interpret this aspect of our contemporary culture. Register now!
