The European League of Institutes of the Arts - ELIA
TAI Madrid School of the Arts is an official member of The European League of Institutes of the Arts – ELIA, the primary independent network organisation for higher arts education. With around 300 members in 47 countries, it represents some 300,000 students in all art disciplines. ELIA advocates for the arts on the European level, creating new opportunities for its members and facilitating the exchange of best practices.
The principle mission of ELIA is to represent Higher Arts Education and to be an influential voice and advocate in promoting the interests of its members. In placing emphasis on the value of arts education and artistic research, ELIA is dedicated to enhance the conditions in which Higher Arts Education can flourish, nationally and internationally.
In addition, being part of ELIA gives access to major international art events for students as well, including the NEW NOW Festival for emerging student talent, held every year in Amsterdam, where TAI presents its students best projects in various fields of art.
