This 4-hour afternoon session is a comprehensive, interactive workshop, designed to guide you or your organization to formulate clear, concise and compelling grants to maximize your chances of success.

Learn how to structure and write a grant that will present your artistic project in the strongest light to potential funders. Clarify the articulation of your artistic vision, find out about available resources, and participate in hands-on exercises using your own project/goal.

Aspects of grant writing to be covered include:

  • the pitch – what’s your passion?
  • the process
  • support materials
  • budgets
  • updates on grants and programs, including the Canada Council for the Arts New Funding Model

Here’s what some past participants had to say:

“The jury mentioned how much they appreciated the clarity and precision of the project proposal. I wonder where I learned how to do that?” – CALQ regional project grant recipient

“…you delivered really clearly, gave us all encouragement and simplified the steps. I got a lot out of it.”

“…clear, beautiful presentations.”

“…well presented, comprehensive, and incredibly helpful! I went home and re-worked my project proposal, and I think it is enormously improved.”

ELAN is an official minority language organization within a country that recognizes two languages as official. ELAN is located in Tiohtiak:ke, the original name for Montreal in Kanien’kéha, the language of the Mohawk—also known as Mooniyang, which is the Anishinaabeg name given to the city by the Algonquin. While we are based in this city, our projects have also taken place in many regions across Quebec.

We acknowledge the colonial origin of English and French in Canada, and recognize that both languages benefit from official status throughout the land. The province that we know as Quebec is an amalgamation of the traditional territories of the Innu and Inuit nations, Algonquian nations, as well as the Mohawk nations of the Haudenosaunee Confederacy. Kanien’kéha and Anishinaabeg are but two of the original languages of this province; Atikamekw, Cree, Inuktitut, and Innu-aimun are also among the many Indigenous languages spoken across Quebec as majority languages, all well before French and English.

ELAN acknowledges the important work being done by First Nations, Inuit and Métis peoples to revive the traditional languages of these territories, and their advocacy for the official status of Indigenous languages.
