Arts, Communities, Education.
DESIGN! ELAN brought 50 participants together for ACE JAM, a design and planning gathering on June 2, 2016. ACE JAM opened the first phase in this project to establish sustainable connections among partners across Québec. Attendees brainstormed ideas for concrete pilot projects that would unite communities, artists, and educators. We are very excited about the quality of the projects proposed during the ACE JAM event. ACE JAM generated some very high-quality proposals that should have exciting results. See photos from ACE JAM on Facebook!
TEST! ELAN actively supported implementation of selected pilot projects. Communities in four different regions have tested the projects with start-up funding and coaching to develop the strongest, most adaptable projects possible.
SCALE! ELAN has promoted successful projects that can be replicated in other communities and schools throughout Canada.
