Art Questions, Art Knows, Art Matters
The 12th ELIA Biennial Conference is the largest conference on Higher Arts Education worldwide, attracting approximately 500 arts and culture professionals worldwide and dovering all artistic disciplines and major developments in Higher Arts Education.
“We meet, we share, we discuss, we celebrate, we establish new links, and sometimes we change our views.”
The ELIA Biennial also features three consecutive plenary sessions called Art Questions, Art Knows, Art Matters, which will be followed by intensive table discussions. These sessions afford delegates the ideal setting to dialogue and network.
In 2012 ELIA is adding a political dimension to the programme. A resolution will be made available to conference participants in advance of the event to stimulate discussion and encourage active engagement between arts and politics.
The resolution’s focus is on underlining the power of the arts and higher arts education for the whole of society beyond economic impact, once culture and creativity is given a chance to develop freely with a high degree of autonomy. It dares participants to look at higher arts education from new angles to prepare students for a different future.
