Québec Relations: Webinar Series

As quarantine enters the month of June, the arts and culture sector continues to learn how to adapt to the new reality under COVID-19. To better support the community in this uncertain period, ELAN’s Québec Relations webinar series is ready to share important information to not only help artists and organizations find financial aid but also think creatively about how they can effectively shift their practice online.

COVID-19 Resources for Artists

Our first session on June 11th at 2 PM will provide an overview of all the most useful COVID-19 resources for artists. From the latest CERB guidelines for individuals to the Canada Emergency Wage Subsidy and other vital resources for organizations, we will walk you through all the main forms of government support available to see you through this difficult period. In addition, we will share some useful and often overlooked discipline-specific emergency funds available through professional associations and foundations that can provide you with a bit of added stability. Participants are also invited to submit specific questions to research@quebec-elan.org ahead of the session and we will do our best to cover as many as time allows.

Introduction to Live Streaming and Monetization

Our second session on June 25th at 2 PM will answer the questions on many artists’ minds right now: with galleries, venues and theatres closed, how do I put my art online and monetize it? In our introduction to live streaming and monetization webinar, we will provide you with a clear and concise overview of the different platforms at your disposal, the services available to monetize your work (as well as strategies to do so more effectively) and the technical tools you need to get started with sharing your work during COVID-19.

June is slated to be a big month for Québec Relations, so make sure you don’t miss out!

To register for one of both free webinars, send an email to research@quebec-elan.org and we will provide you with a link to the session via email before the date of the session.

Québec Relations has what you need to succeed!

In addition to our webinars, Québec Relations has the resources available to help you find the funding you need now and beyond COVID-19. For organizations short on time or not sure where to start, we are available for one-on-one consultations via phone or Zoom to discuss your organization’s funding requirements and suggest programs to consider. If you’re ready to move forward with a grant application, we can even provide access to subsidized grant writing and editing services to help improve your organization’s chances for success. Simply contact research@quebec-elan.org to schedule a call and find out how we can help.

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.
