About

More than ever, artists face pressure to work on a variety of projects in a variety of contexts just to make ends meet. Especially at the beginning of an artistic career, not all of this work is directly in line with our core artistic vision. In the day to day grind, it can be easy to lose sight of the stories, issues, and passions that drive us to make art in the first place.

Filmmaker and producer Tracey Deer and choreographer and dancer Julio Hong have both worked on a variety of projects wearing a variety of hats, with a common thread of community, heritage, and storytelling through the art they produce. They will provide insights from their own careers as well as tangible tools to help you hold the thread of your story, your community, and your artistic vision through the unpredictable reality of embarking on a career as an artist.

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.
