Call for Partners for Upcoming EU Applications

ELIA is commencing the planning of an application for a new Academic network (2013-2016) to be submitted in early 2013 and we are also investigating options for projects in other European programmes. Point of departure is that new projects must address new priorities and developments in higher arts education.

We are interested in new ideas for joint project- and networking activities, bringing together arts institutions from different countries, continuing the work within previous networks such as ArtesNet (2007-2010) and the current network SHARE (2010-2013) funded under the Lifelong Learning Programme. 

Academic Networks operate together with partners from all EU and EU-candidate countries. 

In preparation for this application we would like to invite you to express your interest to become a partner in a new ERASMUS Academic Network and/or in other joint projects.

The focal points of the network are yet to be finalized and at the moment interest in several relevant themes are being investigated:

1. Collaboration with Other Disciplines
2. Collaboration with Societal Organizations
3. Business Collaborations
4. Access to Culture
5. Regional Collaborative Projects

Partners who already conduct activities in these areas and those who are interested in establishing activities are both welcome.

Deadline to apply is 10 September 2012.

To be involved in the next Academic Network for 2013-2016 please download the short form

A Sectoral Qualifications Framework
A bold attempt to produce a common set of statements for Creative and Performing Disciplines

ELIA has been engaged in the university driven Tuning Educational Structures in Europe Project. The broadly used Tuning documents were certainly a milestone. In the last two years a group of ELIA members from visual and performing arts have collaborated with groups from music (AEC) and architecture (ENHSA) in developing a European framework that would for the first time manifest the sector for higher arts education as an independent sector in the European Higher Education Area.

The document, Sectoral Qualifications Framework for the Creative & Performing Disciplines, is a bold attempt to produce a common set of statements about expected achievement levels for students in any and all of the disciplines represented: the visual arts, the performing arts, music and architecture. As well as seeking to define what these disciplines have in common, the framework is intended to bring into focus what sets them apart from other disciplines and gives them their distinctive character as a sectoral grouping.

The framework as it is now is available here. Your critical comments are welcome.
