ELIA announces the ELIA Academy 2019: What’s going on Here? Decoding Digitality in Higher Arts Education, taking place in Stuttgart, Germany from September 25–27, 2019.

This year’s ELIA Academy is co-hosted by Stuttgart State Academy of Art and Design, and State University of Music and the Performing Arts Stuttgart. The Academy showcases teaching and learning in higher arts education and brings together lecturers and students from across Europe and beyond.

The theme of the ELIA Academy 2019 is digitality in higher arts education. Digitalisation shapes approaches to teaching and offers numerous challenges and opportunities across all artistic disciplines. Many students (and teachers) are embracing new forms of digital arts and digital practices; these new, blended practices extend conceptions of creativity. The conference opens up as a creative space for debate, analysis and reflection on this challenging topic.

The three-day programme will feature inspiring keynote speeches, interactive presentations, discussions, networking activities and the chance to explore the host city and host institutions. Review the programme here.
