I have been invited to volunteer as a student delegate for the 2011 ELIA Leadership Symposium. The conference theme is W/HERE: Contesting Knowledge in the 21st Century. ELIA is "The European League of Institutes of the Arts: the primary international network organization of major arts education institutions & universities"
Institution and university leaders have come from across the globe have come to Emily Carr as delegates to discuss the future of higher arts education. I feel privileged to be a part of this meeting of minds. The role of the student delegates is to record table discussions and write blog posts documenting the converstations and days events.
