The Embassy Cultural House is happy to share this recent testimonial of Brown and Dickson Bookstore written by ECH Co-founder and Curatorial Advisor Jamelie Hassan. Brown and Dickson Bookstore is located in London, ON and has partnered with the ECH through the Cloud to Street program. In addition, both Vanessa Brown and Jason Dickson are also contributing members of the Embassy Cultural House. Check out their lovely bookstore online or in-person!
Vanessa Brown and Jason Dickson, the owners of Brown & Dickson Bookstore, have nurtured a sustained relationship with the individuals that make up the communities of London, Ontario. In my independent artist capacity, I have enjoyed their friendship and been witness to their creative endeavours years before the opening of their bookstore.

The infill home at 8 Henry Street, South of Horton (SoHo), London, Ontario, celebrates urban renewal with a contemporary design in a distinctive, downtown neighbourhood. The house marks a collaboration between architect, Bradley Skinner and ceramic artist, Susan Day, whose mosaic installations are represented on murals throughout the city. The impulse to live closer to her downtown studio prompted the move. To view more work by Susan Day, please visit her instagram @susandayceramics.
