Connect, Support, Create

The English-Language Arts Network (ELAN) is a not-for-profit organization that connects, supports, and creates opportunities for Quebec’s English-speaking artists and arts communities.

What We Do

Through our diverse projects, we create opportunities for artists to connect with industry leaders, explore unique partnerships, and connect the arts with community wellbeing.

We host a number of networking events throughout the year, such as our regular Schmoozers, to connect artists across communities and provide learning opportunities. We also work with funding bodies across all levels of government to share information on available funding for artists and encourage artists to apply.

Celebrating 15 Years!

Through 2019-2020, we celebrate ELAN’s 15th anniversary as a non-profit serving English-speaking artists across Quebec …

This includes  the continued successes of projects like the ACE Initiative and ARTS2U, the introduction of new multi-year projects like ArtistsInspire Grants and Québec Relations, and, inspired by feedback from our members, the launch of the Creative Resilience mini-series on Arts & Health.


By joining ELAN with our Pay-What-You-Can membership, you become a part of the largest network of English-speaking artists in Quebec!


ELAN’s projects connect and support Quebec artists and communities to create incredible art.


ELAN regularly meets with government and community leaders about issues concerning funding, market access, community broadcasting, and diversity.
