Support ELIA

Through the inspiration and ideas of young arts graduates, Higher Arts Education brings long-lasting value to today's changing world. It is here, in these laboratories for the development of ideas in the Arts and society that emerging artists are prepared.

At the European League of Institutes of the Arts, ELIA, our mission is to uphold the rich diversity of cultures and foster communication between European and non-European partners in a global cultural society.

ELIA was founded in 1990 and has organised events in cities from Los Angeles to Budapest and Helsinki to Barcelona. ELIA is an international think tank for arts, culture, arts education and their connections with policy development. ELIA is a centre of excellence and knowledge; promoting innovation, creativity and development of the use of new technologies in the arts.

Why is ELIA looking for corporate partners?

We want to do so much more. There are many valued potential members from less developed countries who are not able to take advantage of ELIA.
We need to:
  • support institutions that cannot presently afford membership
  • help third world countries develop higher arts education
  • invest in development projects with new European Union members
  • re-invest in staff development for member institutions


For more information, please contact ELIA Head of Communications and Membership Barbara Revelli at
