About

It’s rough out there. Emerging artists find themselves struggling to make ends meet in the present – never mind planning for the future. Family, friends, and communities can be a great source of support, but nourishing these bonds takes time and effort, two things that can often be in short supply when work demands so much.

How can emerging artists break through the stress of scarcity to think beyond survival? What are some practical steps towards imagining and realizing a fulfilling – and even abundant – future, both personally and artistically?

Visual artist/curator Kakim Goh and musician Nantali Indongo each have extensive professional experience in the arts, as well as other sectors including broadcasting and community education (Nantali) and public/private sector project management (Kakim). They have each found their own way of balancing artistic work with parallel pursuits, while building community and advancing social causes. Kakim and Nantali will draw on their experiences to offer concrete advice on dealing with the challenges of making a living while developing an artistic career.

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’keha:ka, 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’keha:ka 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.
