The cooperation between the sister organisations AEC and ELIA has steadily grown in recent years which is increasingly manifested in concrete projects. The ELIA Academy 2019 will be jointly hosted by the Academy of Fine Arts and the University of Music and Performing Arts in Stuttgart. It was on initiative and special request of the two Stuttgart-based ELIA and AEC members that ELIA Academy will be fully open to AEC members for the first time, giving them the opportunity to attend the event on equal terms as AEC members.

AEC encourages its members to attend this event, especially since the next Academy's subject offers plenty of opportunities for cross-sector thinking and action: 'What’s going on Here? Decoding Digitality in Higher Arts Education'.

AEC members are also encouraged to submit presentation proposals by Monday 14 January 2019. More details can be found on ELIA Website.
