CBC X ELAN Workshop: Getting Media Attention

November 10 @ 10:00 am - 12:00 pm

CBC x ELAN workshop Getting Media Attention

This is an online event that will take place via Zoom. The Zoom link will be shared after confirmation of registration. Please note that space is limited. 


ELAN is pleased to bring back a very popular hands-on, and this time, slightly altered workshop presented by CBC Montreal’s Debbie Hynes, Manager of Communications, Marketing & Brand. This session will focus on tangible skills for writing press releases and pitching them to the media and/or arts publicists in the time of Covid-19.

The workshop will also include a guest Q&A session with a CBC arts journalist (to be announced) and an opportunity to receive feedback on your pitches.

Registration: This workshop is FREE for ELAN members but spots are VERY limited. To apply, send us your discipline as well as a few lines about why you want to join this workshop and if you’ve had any previous experience pitching to media by email at: admin@quebec-elan.org.

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’kéha, 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’kéha 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.
