The vision behind ELAN’s Recognizing Artists: Enfin Visibles ! project was simple: Artists need to be part of a community, and communities need artists. Quebec is not simple. It is a complex mix of linguistic, geographic and cultural communities. Most of Quebec’s “English-speaking” artists are bilingual, trilingual or multilingual. Many were born in Quebec where their families have lived for generations, while others immigrated here as children or were drawn as adults for a wide variety of reasons. RAEV reveals a surprising diversity of stories.

PROFILES
Peers and fans proposed more than 1,700 artists for ELAN's RAEV project. The 154 artists selected for this “group portrait” represent multiple artistic disciplines, regions and career stages: from internationally renowned icons to emerging artists creating a buzz in the local scene. These short bios are a snapshot of a much larger artistic community.*

VIDEOS
The videoclips show 24 artists at work and ask questions about what it means to be part of a minority community that is also connected to an international linguistic majority. Being a minority/majority within a majority/minority creates unpredictable identities.

HISTORIES
These essays place the current artistic renaissance in a historical context, outlining major characters, events and previously undocumented stories. The interactive format invites readers to enrich the content by adding their own anecdotes and personal memories.

MAP
Culturealacarte.ca is an online map that helps you find shows, venues and artists in your neighbourhood and across the province.
