SAVE THE DATE: Arts in an Era of Populism
ELIA – ICFAD
Global Seminar for higher arts education
Arts in an Era of Populism
8 – 9 June 2020
Hosted by ELISAVA, Barcelona
For the first time, ELIA is organising a Global Seminar in collaboration with ICFAD – International Council of Fine Arts Deans
, kindly hosted by ELISAVA Barcelona School of Design and Engineering
This international event brings together leaders of higher arts education institutions from North America and Europe to exchange both strategic and practical ideas.
In this frame, we address the challenging role of the Arts in an Era of Populism, what are its implications and which alternative strategies can we imagine. While the political landscape is ever-changing, the current trend of populism brings forward many questions about how politics affect arts and design, and its teaching. What opportunities can open up for us and do we have to reframe education?
The Global Seminar will take place on 8 and 9 June 2020 in Barcelona, and is open to members of ELIA and ICFAD. Registration is now open!
