Now in its second year, Arts Alive! Quebec is an initiative of the English Language Arts Network (ELAN). It offers English artists a chance to expand their reach into communities they may not normally visit. 

Hudson, Quebec City, Huntington and Knowlton and Wakefield held very successful weekends filled to the brim with music, theatre and storytelling. The Pointe-Claire events offers activities to suit all ages.
