ELIA Academy 2019 —  in Review


        The theme of the 9th ELIA Academy was digitalisation. Many students (and teachers) are embracing new forms of digital arts and digital practices — these new, blended practices stretch our conceptions of creativity. This topic offered the chance to debate, analyse and reflect on the challenges and opportunities across all artistic disciplines and teaching approaches.

In addition to keynote speeches, the programme featured interactive presentations focused on a number of common keywords, each connected to a specific aspect of digitalisation. Delegates were able to navigate their own digital path through the Academy by exploring one or several of the following topics:

Emotional experience / immersion
Critical attention / scepticism
Societal impact
Developing digital pedagogies
Digital fluencies
Research / methodologies
Storytelling / narrative
History / foundations / roots

The event was a great success and we are happy about having brought the ELIA Academy to Stuttgart! Fahim was in the steering group of the ELIA Academy 2019 and acted as chair for several sessions.
