We are delighted to announce our call for contributions for  ELIA Biennial Conference 2024, taking place November 20–23 in Milan, Italy, hosted by NABA, Nuova Accademia di Belle Arti.

Arts Plural
Artists and designers possess a particular form of intelligence. Although considered powerful in certain circles, artistic intelligence is frequently ill-defined or misread. However, as a system of capacities for perception, insight, sensing, creating, and decision-making, it has been driving human evolution beyond boundaries for centuries. But how do we define artistic intelligence and its possibilities in a contemporary context? 

ELIA Biennial 2024 Arts Plural celebrates artistic intelligence. It questions how artistic practitioners, designers, students, and educators can be recognised as agents of change, innovation, and evolution. It asks how arts education can contribute to society in a more pluralistic way. What structures are necessary for artistic intelligence to play a role in addressing planetary problems? Read more.   

Together we seek to find new ways to influence transformation in politics, ecology, ethics, technology and sustainability to build inclusive futures based on plural voices.  Submit your proposal to present at what is set to be a momentous ELIA event. See you in Milan!

Who can apply
Representatives of ELIA member institutions from all artistic disciplines, such as lecturers, students, researchers, artists, senior managers, administrators, international officers, and supporting and technical staff members, are invited to submit proposals.
