ECH SUMMER BREAK
August 9 - September 8
As of August 9, the ECH will be on summer break until September 8. After an incredibly successful first year, we are using this time to reflect on the future and recharge. We are cognizant of the time and energy poured into this collective, and we are truly grateful to the supportive community in London and beyond, in addition to our incredible contributing members, contributing editors, advisory circle, and institutional and community partners.
Stay tuned for the fall season as we continue with our extensive programming! Here is a sneak peak of what is to come...
In the meantime, best wishes from the Embassy Cultural House.
Enjoy the warm weather and stay safe!

Artists Jamelie Hassan and Ron Benner and jazz musician Eric Stach founded the Embassy Cultural House (1983-1990) located in the restaurant portion of the Embassy Hotel at 732 Dundas Street in East London. Other former members of the board were: Debrann Eastabrook, Henry Eastabrook, Sharron Forrest, Wyn Geleynse, Janice Gurney, Jean Hay (1929 - 2008), Doug Mitchell, Kim Moodie, Gerard Pas, Peter Rist, Wanda Sawicki, Jean Spence and Jennie White. In 2020, at the height of the COVID-19 pandemic, the Embassy Cultural House was re-envisioned as a virtual artist-run space and website.
This project is supported by the London Arts Council through the City of London's Community Arts Investment Program:
