Radio-Canada's Dimanche Magazine does a piece on Anglos that are bilingual and well-integrated into Quebec. ELAN's Executive Director Guy Rodgers was interviewed in this show that presented ELAN as an arts organization that helps shape a civil and constructive dialogue.
The idea of a vibrant bilingual and/or anglophone culture "Made au Québec" is making its way out there! Alain Dubuc argues persuasively that, beyond a diversity of cultures that all big cities have, Montreal distinguishes itself through its bilingualism. It is this bilingualism which can cause tensions - but also fuel unprecedented creativity and collaborations.

Virginia Woolf said: "clothes have more important offices than merely to keep us warm; they change our view of the world and the world's view of us." Anne with an 'e' needed a dress with puffed sleeves. Daisy saw the beauty in Gatsby's shirts. Sasha Jansen just wanted a new hat. On Friday, June 14th, join WORN Fashion Journal for a close reading of clothes in literature. Bring a passage of your favorite description of clothing in any book, hang with the Wornettes, and pick up a copy of the brand new issue!
WORN Fashion Journal is a completely different kind of fashion magazine - instead of focusing on trends or commerce, we focus on the histories, personal stories, cultures, and subcultures of fashion.

Librairie Drawn & Quarterly and Residual Reading Series are pleased to present a reading of two new works of fiction by Marguerite Pigeon and Natalee Caple. Natalee’s new novel, In Calamity’s Wake, has been described as a cinematic adventure, a dual, or dueling, narrative in two voices that darts between, as Zoe Whittall writes, “mythology, historical accounts, song lyrics, poetry, rumours, and fiction of the time period.” Pigeon’s Open Pit confronts the landscape and the civil rights of indigenous people against the backdrop of big business and amid the chaos of love, relief and difference, resulting in the questioning of what it means to be situated against will.
Join us as these two talented and unique writers launch their books together in Montreal.
211 Bernard Ouest, Tuesday, June 4 at 7:30 p.m.
You are invited to a special Kids Day event with John and Jana, who will read their books A Rule Is To Break: A Child's Guide To Anarchy, Happy Punks 123: A Counting Story, and A Year With Friends, and host a Give Stuff Away For Free Party that will take donations for the Multi Caf food bank in exchange for free signed prints and mini comics. There will also be coloring pages, snacks, and a book signing.

During the past two years ELAN has had the opportunity to bring more arts and culture to a multitude of communities throughout Quebec. As of March 31st our ACCORD pilot project has officially ended, but Project Manager Elsa Bolam has volunteered to stay on to provide ideas, and act as a matchmaker for future projects. Thanks, Elsa!
We have had a busy few months at ELAN, completing the ACCORD project and launching Made au Québec, which continues to receive media coverage, particularly in the Francophone media. If you have not yet visited the site, I highly recommend it. There is no better place to find out who is making the news and why. We invite you all to notify us of all media coverage that you receive, or that your friends receive. Forward the links to email@example.com.

Low-budget filmmakers these days can afford to take risks and explore new artistic territory outside of the classical Hollywood narrative. Independent filmmakers are no longer dependent on major studios to provide them with the tools they need to produce a film as they can now interact with the global filmmaking community and acquire inexpensive, high-end digital film equipment available at the consumer level. Small production companies and filmmakers can obtain the resources they need to produce entertaining films at a fraction of the cost. The collapse in funding for the arts has prompted the community to come together and create productive collaborations.
