Calling ELAN members, friends, artists, and arts lovers! Whether you’re a new or old ELAN member, or just curious about what we do and how we do it, our AGM is a great way to connect with us and Quebec's art community.

Meet our staff and board, help elect new board members, and learn about our past year and what's ahead. Plus, we’ll be launching our new tagline, logo, and website!

After the AGM, make some creative connections (and have some complimentary snacks!) at the Schmoozer!

Over 600 ELAN members and friends connected through our events and workshops in 2015-16. At our AGM, we'll fill you in on:

  • Arts Alive! Québec, whichbrought together over 5,000 artists and arts lovers across six communities. (funded by the Government of Canada)
  • Videotron's agreement to produce 20% English-language content on its community television station MAtv.
  • The National Film Board (NFB)'s $3-million, three-year cooperation and collaboration agreement to strengthen Quebec’s audiovisual sector and culture.

We're excited to announce news about our upcoming year—we have lots planned:

Professional, Student, and Organizational ELAN members in good standing as of August 10 can vote during the business portion of the AGM. Renew before August 10 to ensure that you can vote! Friend members and observers can't vote, but are welcome to attend.
