13th ELIA Biennial Conference
13-15 November 2014 in Glasgow 

Call for Papers, Pecha Kucha and Open Space 

Deadline 10 January 2014

ELIA is pleased to announce that the Royal Conservatoire of Scotland and The Glasgow School of Art  are hosting the 13th ELIA Biennial Conference in the vibrant and cosmopolitan city of Glasgow.

The Steering Group of the 13th ELIA Biennial Conference invites colleagues from ELIA member institutions from all artistic disciplines to contribute to the programme.

This year’s conference theme focuses on the relationship between the creative and the city and the dynamic interplay between place, culture, creativity and the artist.  Recognising that the arts are both the most local and the most international of activities - proud of their traditions and identity, but at their most exciting when they break down barriers and cross borders, LOCATION AESTHETICS will explore the cultural, social and economic role that creative individuals and institutions play in creating and transforming a city, regional or national identity and place in the world.

Four sub-themes have been identified to address more specific issues:

» Identity-Diversity
» Regionalism-Globalism
» Homecoming-Nomadism
» Economy-Culture

Submissions can be sent in for one of the following three categories:

» Pecha Kucha Presentation
» Paper Presentation
» Open Space

Application and Selection Procedure
For detailed information please refer to the Call for Papers, Pecha Kucha, and Open Space Page on the ELIA Biennial Website.

Submissions should be sent with the required submission form downloadable here to ELIA Conference Manager Barbara Revelli at barbara.revelli@elia-artschools.org by Friday 10 January 2014.

Selected applicants will be offered a reduced participation fee of 350 EURO

For further information, please contact ELIA Conference Manager Barbara Revelli at barbara.revelli@elia-artschools.org.

Creative Europe and ERASMUS + Programmes Now Published!

Creative Europe Subprogramme Culture

The 2014 Call for Proposals offers new opportunities for art schools and for emerging artists. There is a strong focus on actions in the fields of skills, competencies and know-how; digital technologies and testing innovative approaches to audience development and to business models. Also the term ‘artistic innovation’ is mentioned. Take care that audience development is a key overarching priority. The (large scale and small scale) cooperation projects offer fairly good opportunities for higher arts education institutes. The deadline for application for European cooperation projects is 5 March 2014.

The Sub-programme Media has deadlines from February to July 2014. Gaming is one of the priorities. Not all Media calls for applications have been published yet.

The Erasmus+ Programme Guide and deadlines have been published, but unfortunately not all documentation is already available on the website. It is announced that applying online will be possible from the end of January 2014.

For Key Action 1 Individual Mobility actions (also including joint master degrees) the deadline for submission of applications is the 17 March 2014. Note that there is an extra emphasis on staff mobility.

For Key Action 2 Cooperation for Innovation and exchange of good practice includes Strategic Partnerships and Knowledge Alliances. Sector Skills Alliances target vocational training, which normally not applies to higher arts education.

Strategic Partnerships (see page 95 of the guide) offer a wide range of opportunities supporting the development, transfer and/or implementation of innovative practices ranging from quality, collaborative learning and critical thinking, entrepreneurship education etc.  It offers quite a bit of flexibility in terms of activities and objectives. The deadline for submitting applications for Strategic Partnerships is 30 April 2014.

Knowledge Alliances (see page 109 of the Guide) are more specific, structured, result-driven transnational projects, notably between higher education and business and the broader socio-economic environment. The deadline for submission of applications for Knowledge Alliances is 3 April 2014.
