Additional Information (Publicly available):

Following the success of the ELIA Biennial Conference in Gothenburg in 2008 (hosted by the University of Gothenburg), we are pleased to announce that the Ecole Supérieure des Beaux – Art de Nantes Metropole has invited ELIA to hold its 11th Biennial Conference in the elegant and dynamic city of Nantes, France. The conference will take place at the Lieu Unique (LU), located in the middle of Nantes and surrounded by the city’s art schools and cultural institutions.

The structure of the conference is a bit different compared to previous conferences, we will for instance continue with discussions during the lunches. We have chosen for 8 symposia of one and a half hour each and for 10 discipline sessions, but there is space left open for new suggestions. There is an overarching theme for the conference, connected with the city of Nantes, under which umbrella we intend to address most burning, important, current and inspiring issues that concern higher arts education in Europe. With this call for papers and presentations we ask ELIA members to give input to the programme in Nantes through new, innovative ideas and good practice.

As art and culture move away from their role as tools in gentrification processes they become instrumental in the emergence of a new development model. The history of the city of Nantes is symptomatic of the transformations caused by globalization in the past three centuries. Today, the knowledge economy is central in the city's efforts to make art a driving force for the development of its territory.

Five perspectives on the role of the Arts and Higher Art Education could be addressed in the framework of the 11th ELIA Conference and feed the different symposia and discipline sessions:

1. Arts at the heart of the "way of living", questioning behaviours.
2. Arts encourage the emergence of contributors in place of consumers.
3. Arts name and identify territories.
4. Arts meet science and question environments.
5. Arts reinvent and "moralize" customs.
