What Kinds of Stories Does ECAMP Share?
We share stories about our People— from grassroots organizers to hometown heroes to community change-makers, problematic politicians, or front-line workers. A city is made up of its people, and whether you are a recent arrival or someone who’s family has lived here since time immemorial, your story is valued part of Edmonton’s history.
We share stories of our Places— like long lost music venues, paved over ravines, movie theatres, Mom & Pop businesses, cultural landscapes, places of worship, and local landmarks. In a city that tends to tear things down & pave things over, what places once existed but are no more? Where are the impressions of these places still visible?
We seek tales of unique Things related to the city, the classic props to Edmonton’s narrative— our statues, public art, mascots, or Edmonton-made products. If Edmonton had a museum about our city, what would absolutely have to be there?
We seek to capture our memorable Moments— iconic concerts & sporting events, labour strikes, festivals, films & TV shows filmed in Edmonton, upsets, and celebrations. When woven together, these are the moments that fill our city & give Edmontonians meaning.
