ELAN Archives

Over the years, ELAN has made cultural advocacy a means to shape our programming and serve our members. In our Archives, we’ve made available our project reports, policy papers, arts research, past surveys, workshop materials, panel transcripts, public statements, and press releases.

Community Links

Are you looking for organizations involved in cultural and advocacy work? Need career advice or legal support to navigate contracts?

Resources from Workshops

ELAN hosts various workshops for artists to hone professional skills and gain insight into funding resources. Some of our workshops have included our Performing Arts Market Access Savvy Sessions, as well as a number of events through State of the Arts.


Community building is a big priority for ELAN. It’s implied in everything we do – from State of the Arts to the ACE Initiative. We’ve created a tutorial on using our member-submitted Community Calendar, tips to get you thinking about accessibility for your events, and a guide on writing a professional artist bio.
