Many members of the English-speaking arts community have questions about the provincial granting agency Conseil des arts et des lettres du Québec (CALQ) – Do I have to submit applications in French or can I apply in English? Will the juries understand my work?

In addition, CALQ is reviewing and updating its entire range of programs. If you have questions about CALQ, its existing programs, or the new programs being introduced this winter, this is your opportunity to ask your questions – in English (or French).
Join us for a presentation and Q&A by program officer Laurent Rozencwajg.

Wednesday October 26, 5 à 7
MAI Café (3680 Rue Jeanne-Mance)
FREE and open to all!

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.
