Creative Catalogue 


ELAN invited art lovers to send the name of a work of art by an Anglo-Quebecois artist ‘who has inspired you, encouraged you or made you feel that someone else shared a piece of your reality as an English-speaker living in Quebec.’ Submissions were open to books, plays, dance performances, film, song or visual art. 

We are proud to share these important works of art.

What We Choose To Remember


Coming soon : May 13



What We Choose to Remember features a cast of more than 30 characters, whose families arrived in successive waves of immigration. The oldest families arrived during the period of ‘two solitudes’ when Montreal’s population was more than 50% English. They share firsthand accounts decades of political upheaval. The most recent immigrants arrived believing linguistic conflicts were ancient history.

Our story takes place on the Indigenous lands of the Kanien’kehá:ka (Mohawk) nation of the Haudenosaunee Confederacy. Tiotià:ke (known as Montréal) has existed as a meeting place of many First Nation peoples, including but not limited to the Abenaki , Anishinaabeg (Algonquin), and the Huron-Wendat. We extend our deepest respect to the elders of these nations and to all Indigenous peoples who carry the history of this island’s land and waters. We also call upon all levels of government to adopt and implement the 94 recommendations of the Truth and Reconciliation commission.
