English- and French-speaking artists, and representatives of the Conseil de la Culture de l’Estrie, Townshippers’ Association, and ELAN (English Language  Arts Network), have come together to bring you Made in Estrie! Hosted by Ziv Pryztek of Shazamfest, Made in Estrie will be the first event to help bridge the gap between the Townships’ two artistic solitudes.

Prior to the event, 10 French-speaking artists/organizations and 10 artists/organizations that work mainly in English can register for the Marché Éclair.

At the beginning of the event, participants will be paired together (an English-speaker and a French-speaker) to discuss their new project, album, book, or other work of art. Later, each person will present the project/work of the artist they were paired with. Each participant will be given 1 minute to speak (2 minutes per pair). Townshippers’ Association will provide a $20 gas gift card for each artist participating in the Marché Éclair, and living within the Eastern Townships 40+ km from Sherbrooke.

To register for the Marché, fill out this form or contact Guillaume Houle or Kristelle Holliday at the coordinates above by Friday, November 10.

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.
