Background

There has been no organizations for exchanges and cooperation between art colleges in the Asia
region even though the need for art exchanges has been increasing due to expanded international
exchanges and cooperation between countries in the region. Therefore, there was a consensus on the
necessity for a consultative body for art institutes in Asia.

Commemorating the 20th anniversary of its foundation in 2012, Korea National University of Arts
pushed forward with the plan of creating the Asian League of Institutes of the Arts at an international
symposium, co-hosted by ELIA (European League of Institutes of the Arts) and the universities, where
major officials from European and Asian art colleges and other arts institutes took part.

『Asian League of Institutes of the Arts 』aims to establish a network for exchanges and cooperation
between art education institutes among Asian countries, to vitalize exchanges and cooperation with
the European League of Institutes of the Arts, and further to build an international cooperative body.
