13th ELIA Biennial Conference 2014: LOCATION AESTHETICS in Glasgow: Call for Papers, Pecha Kucha, and Open Space Presentations and Pre-Registration Now Open!

ELIA is pleased to announce that the Royal Conservatoire of Scotland and The Glasgow School of Art are hosting the 13th ELIA Biennial Conference in the vibrant and cosmopolitan city of Glasgow 13–15 November 2014.

The Steering Group of the 13th ELIA Biennial Conference invites colleagues from ELIA member institutions from all artistic disciplines to contribute to the programme by submitting proposals for Pecha Kucha, Paper and Open Space Presentations by 10 January 2014.

This year's conference theme focuses on the relationship between the creative and the city and the dynamic interplay between place, culture, creativity and the artist.  Recognising that the arts are both the most local and the most international of activities—proud of their traditions and identity, but at their most exciting when they break down barriers and cross borders, LOCATION AESTHETICS will explore the cultural, social and economic role that creative individuals and institutions play in creating and transforming a city, regional or national identity and place in the world.

Four sub-themes have been identified to address more specific issues:

  • Identity-Diversity
  • Regionalism-Globalism
  • Homecoming-Nomadism
  • Economy-Culture
