Join us for a shared networking event for Quebec’s English language artists and writers.

Catch up with old friends, meet new ones and share what you’ve been working on. You don’t have to be an ELAN or QWF member to attend, so feel free to invite any friends or colleagues that you think might be interested. All artistic disciplines and backgrounds welcome!

Everyone can schmooze, and the first 10 ELAN or QWF members to contact us even get speaking slots for promotion during the Minute Market.

What’s a Minute Market?

Our Minute Market is a great opportunity to promote your current projects. The first ten ELAN or QWF members to contact will be given a one-minute spot to market your latest work. (You will also be asked to provide a book, recording, art object, pair of tickets, or other small door prize to give away to the audience.)

Please join us! And spread the word!

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.
