Educators are contacting us and applying to use their schools’ $1500 ArtistsInspire Grants!  This program connects professional Artists working in every discipline with English public schools across Quebec. Help us ensure every eligible school uses their grant this year by sharing the news with educators you know across Quebec. Click to see and share: 

We love to speak with educators. When sharing, please include an invitation to email and/or phone us at artistsinspiregrants@quebec-elan.org or phone at 438-979-1171.

Do you know families who are Homeschooling? Stay tuned for our program for students learning at home. In the meantime, the Online Workshops Inspiration section of our website provides many examples of what this form of learning experience is like!

Developing students’ creativity through Artist-facilitated virtual or in-person Arts & Culture experiences is what we do. We understand the reality that artists, educators and parents are facing in this challenging time and will support our community in every way we can.

Let’s work together to bring quality arts experiences to our children, youth and communities whether on-line or in-person! For more information and inspiration see:

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.
