ELAN is pleased to host a panel discussion in collaboration with YES Montreal and CEDEC offering a wide-ranging introduction to provincial funding available specifically for organizations in the arts. The aim of this panel is to empower organizations to seek out funding from not only Quebec’s various arts and culture programs but also the new provincial sources identified by ELAN’s Québec Relations project, while at the same time promoting the adoption of sustainable business models.

We will begin with an overview of available provincial funding and the resources offered through Québec Relations to help arts organizations identify relevant programs and demystify the application process. We will then expand the discussion to the topic of creative entrepreneurship, explaining the business skills every successful creative entrepreneur should possess, the various other revenue streams they can pursue, and how they can effectively demonstrate their value and sustainability when approaching funders.

Gonzalo Coloma (YES Artist Business Coach)

Gonzalo is a citizen of the world; his career has allowed him to travel to more than 50 countries. After completing an engineering degree, he ran away with the circus, literally. He completed his circus studies at the world-renowned National Circus School of Montreal where he specialized in Juggling, Clown and Hand to Hand.

Upon graduation, Gonzalo combined an amazing career in different circus companies (like Cirque du Soleil, Cirque Eloize, and Disney World) with his own entrepreneurial vein. Over the years Gonzalo, under his artist name Locoma, created many different solo shows. His show Rock’n Roll Circus was performed over 700 times in more than 20 countries. In 2011 he opened his first circus company, The LOL Brothers, and in 2014 he co-founded the company La Barbotte and co-directed and performed its first show “Entre deux Eaux”, which went on to play at the prestigious circus festival, Montréal Completement Cirque.

Looking to expand his horizons, in 2018, Gonzalo enrolled at HEC Montréal to do his MBA. He was mainly interested in strategy, finances as well of start-up growth. Upon graduation, Gonzalo has consulted for different companies on the creative/entertainment industry as well as coached different entrepreneurs in the Film, Multimedia, Tourism and Circus industries.

As an artist business coach, Gonzalo wants to help artists monetize their art, define and achieve medium and long term goals that will allow them to create a stronger brand for their work and encourage and inspire them through their artistic journey.

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.
