ArtFutures - Current issues in higher arts education

17 March 2011

The new ELIA publication brings together contributions by arts educators and thinkers from eight countries and a variety of disciplines. Together, these papers provide an insight into current debates in higher arts education and the role of ELIA within this field.

ArtFutures covers a wide range of topics from post-consumerist art and activist design, via the public role of education and the creative economy, to documentary theatre and improvisation with live electronics.The contributions show higher arts education as a field in transformation, illustrate the many ways in which society and art schools interact, and show how art schools are engaged in preparing the ground for new artists and helping them face the challenges of contemporary life.
ArtFutures will be distributed to all ELIA members in April. You can already read it here. (Pdf 3MB)
