Québec Relations Updates!

Conseil des arts et des lettres du Québec (CALQ) has announced two significant new programs to support artists and arts organizations as they adapt their work during COVID-19, and it’s crucial to get your applications in as early as possible while funding lasts. Fortunately, you don’t have to do it alone – ELAN’s Québec Relations project has the resources to help you apply, at no cost!

First, with its Exploration et déploiement numérique program, CALQ is offering up to $100,000 to both artists and organizations for projects that use digital tools to connect with their audiences. Whether it’s broadcasting performances online or adapting a piece for a podcast, this is a great opportunity to explore new ways of sharing your work as widely as possible despite the pandemic.

For organizations in the performing arts, the Présentation de spectacles en distanciation physique program supports innovative approaches to reaching audiences while respecting social distancing conditions. It could be a performance in a park, an alley, in front of an apartment building or an old age home… Let your imaginations run wild and take your show somewhere it’s never been before.

Most importantly, Québec Relations can provide you with the support you require to put your best foot forward. Whether you’re an experienced grant writer looking to polish an application or a first-time applicant in need of hands-on grant writing assistance from start to finish, we can refer you to an experienced grant writing consultant and help you submit a strong application. All it takes is getting in touch, so contact us at research@quebec-elan.org to find out how Québec Relations can support your work during COVID-19 and beyond!
