ELIA Leadership Symposium 2021 - Early Bird - Combi-Deals


ELIA is excited to invite you to:

                                                  ELIA Leadership Symposium 2021: Surfing Uncertainties
                                                               17-19 November 2021 in Tallinn, Estonia

Explore the momentum of radical change and dynamic uncertainty - how it can be articulated, assessed, and assembled into a positive force. Take this experience as a roadmap for self-discovery and institutional opportunity.
We are delighted to announce three keynote speakers in our distinguished line-up:


Discussing the ongoing digitalisation of economies and governments, we present President of Estonia, Kersti Kaljulaid.


Imagining new futures we look to Mikko Dufva, the Finnish Innovation Fund Sitra’s leading foresight specialist for advice.


Reflecting on managerial challenges, we talk to Aaron Dworkin, former dean of University of Michigan’s School of Music, Theatre & Dance (SMTD) and founder of The Sphinx Organisation.

How have you navigated unchartered territory in the past year? What waves carried you? What rocks did you falter on?

The ELIA Leadership Symposium would like to provide an open space for exchange, conversation and reflection for its participants. If you are interested in sharing your stories of uncertainty, please let us know. We aim to provide a safe haven for all our arts education leaders to share experiences.
