Our Work

The English-Language Arts Network (ELAN) is a not-for-profit organization that connects, supports, and creates opportunities for English-speaking artists and cultural workers of all disciplines from every region of Quebec. We share expertise and resources for career advancement, funding opportunities, employment opportunities, and calls for participation in the arts. We advocate for our members’ interests, and make common cause with the Francophone arts community.

Events Calendar

We host a number of networking events throughout the year, such as our regular Schmoozers, to connect artists across communities and provide learning opportunities. Browse the calendar for great performances, exhibitions, workshops, and community gatherings for English-speaking artists in Quebec.

Projects

Through our diverse projects, we create opportunities for artists to connect with industry leaders, explore unique partnerships, and connect the arts with community wellbeing.

ArtEd Initiatives

Arts and Education are natural partners. The benefits for students in developing identity, creativity, and self-expression are well documented. ELAN’s ArtEd Initiatives include the ACE Initiative and the ArtistsInspire Grants. Click below to see the overview and updates for both projects.

Québec Relations

To ensure that English-speaking artists can thrive in Quebec and contribute to the vitality of English-speaking communities, there is a need for better communication and relationship-building with decision-makers and program managers in Quebec. The Québec Relations project now seeks to develop better working relationships with relevant agencies and ministries of the provincial government.

ARTS2U

ARTS2U is a feed of arts and culture events listings. Information about arts events is compiled into a structured database and fed to media for display on their websites, and directly to arts audiences, saving producers time and by-passing marketing intermediaries. ARTS2U is currently being developed in partnership with other arts organizations, through surveys, creative partnerships, and hackathons.
