Career Labs

ELAN’s Career Labs
series places emerging artists directly in conversation with artists who have established careers with Montreal as a home base.

Each Lab encourages open, honest, and practical discussions about the difficult aspects that working artists face: dealing with money (or lack thereof), talking about your work, maintaining balance, learning from failure, building support networks, standing up for yourself, and more.

Part workshop, part artist talk, part round table, Career Labs equip you with recommendations, tips, insights, and actions to help you carve out your path as a working artist in Montreal.

Please note that Career Labs are free, however, space is limited. Priority is given to emerging artists.

Accessibility is important to us. All Career Labs are free, although spaces are limited and priority is given to emerging artists. Registration is limited to two Career Labs per participant.

To register, please select the lab you would like to attend on the left under “Upcoming Career Labs”. If you have any questions about registration or about Career Labs, please email us at

ELAN`s Career Labs is made possible with the support of the Conseil des arts de Montréal.
