13th ELIA Biennial Conference
ELIA, the European League of Institutes of the Arts, is 'the primary international network organisation of major arts education institutions & universities'. Glasgow's very proud of its cultural identity, so it's a great place for this conference.
"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.
