Presented by ELAN’s Québec Relations project, we will be joined by CALQ program officers who provide an overview of their funding programs for organizations. They will also highlight their 2022-2023 activities related to the Plan pour consolider, faire briller et propulser le milieu culturel announced by the Gouvernement du Québec earlier this year. The session will conclude with a Q&A period during which you can pose your questions directly. To RSVP, we ask that you kindly register in advance.

If you need a chuckle, you can see them all on the Affinity Photo People's Choice Award page, where you can also vote for your favourite and be in with a chance of winning £500 courtesy of our brilliant sponsors at Affinity Photo. And if you're stuck for a Christmas present, prints of all the 2022 Finalists are available to buy on our Shop page!
