ELAN’s Recognizing Artists project successfully launched

Last March, the English-Language Arts Network (ELAN) completed the first phase of the Recognizing Artists: Enfin Visibles! project by producing 150 print profiles of artists. This year, ELAN completes RAEV by adding video clips, interactive maps and never-before-told stories about how Quebec’s English-speaking cultural scene has exploded with creative talent over the past 25 years. The timing is propitious, hot on the heels of Arcade Fire’s Grammy victory, which stirred Quebec’s Assemblée Nationale to applaud ‘the contribution of our francophone and anglophone artists in spreading Quebec culture on the international stage.’ There has never been so much curiosity about what anglophone artists are doing. The vernissage also included the launch of the redesigned RAEV.ca site. ELAN also invites the public to visit the site to discover RAEV’s interactive tools for English-speaking Artists.
