The east side of our building will feature a large-scale projection series based on the history and heritage of our building, and the theme of celebration with cakes. Well-known as the former Standard Bread Factory that was built in the “Roaring 1920’s”, the projection will feature archival imagery intertwined with inspired and artistic contemporary interpretations of cake that have been created by EBA artists.

Tell us your cake stories! We invite you to share your memories of cake and of celebration. With a keen focus on the cross experience between food, heritage, and culture, we will capture, via digital storytelling, a diverse range of unique Canadian stories from the culturally diverse Canadians in attendance at our events. On-site storytelling will be available on August 17, 20, and 23. Participation is voluntary.
Cake Stories will be hosted on the first floor of our building. Access to the inside of our building is limited to stairs. We do not have ramps, lifts, or elevators.
Can’t tell us your story in person? No worries! Your story can be sent directly to us at: firstname.lastname@example.org.
All video files must be no longer than 60 seconds in length, and sent to us by August 31st. The final video will be posted on our social media outlets and catalogued at The National Library and Archives. By submitting your video, you are agreeing to allow us to share your content on our social media.
