15th ELIA Biennial Conference invites colleagues from ELIA member institutions from all artistic disciplines to contribute to the programme of the conference and showcase their practices.

The conference will take place in Rotterdam, the Netherlands between 21-24 November 2018 and is hosted by Codarts University of the Arts and Willem de Kooning Academy.

The 15th ELIA Biennial Conference sets out to examine how art, design and performance can play a vital role in building resilience, especially in the urban context. The topic will be developed along four subthemes:

  • Shifting Centres, Shifting Margins
  • Art and Social Cohesion
  • Art and Economy
  • Art and Innovation

Proposal can be sent in for one out of the three categories: short presentation (Pecha Kucha), paper presentation, and other formats. Submissions should refer to the conference theme and its sub-themes. The submissions should reflect a level, focus and innovative quality that are appropriate for the audience of the ELIA Biennial Conference. The organisers expect lecturers, researchers, artists, leaders and other representatives from ELIA member institutions, representing all artistic disciplines to join this event.
