ELAN’s Arts & Education Team has worked with arts and education organizations who have connections with professional artists in dance, film, literature, music, theatre, and visual arts – their practices include a wide variety of specialities to engage students of all ages. Eligible Artists identify as members of the English-speaking Communities of Québec – they represent the diversity of the ESCs’ demographics and cultural communities. For special requests (particular specialization or cultural community) please contact us.
