Together with Grégory Castéra, Eliel  collaborates on Council, an art organisation devoted to fostering better understanding of societal issues. It was founded with the conviction that art produces meaningful social change and that its influence can be extended to other domains. Council develops a long-term artistic programme by partnering with thinkers and makers from different fields of action and expertise. Council commissions artworks, curates exhibitions, designs assemblies, and orchestrates educational programmes. Council’s programme addresses issues related to health and care, gender equality, ecology, collective practices and social innovation. Through these activities, Council builds trans-local networks of creative and civically minded communities. Council was founded and registered as a nonprofit organisation in France by Grégory Castéra and Sandra Terdjman and is composed today of a team of eight. It is financially supported by foundations and cultural institutions. The offices are located in Paris, and activities take place internationally.
