The next phase of VESSEL’s Ephemera Storytelling Box begins this summer!
Following its presentation in the Gallery at the Centre, the ESB will be spending a stretch this summer at Kathy’s Brew Ha Ha here in scenic Elliot Lake, starting sometime in July. It’s a perfect place to meet some friends, grab a bite and a drink, and explore the story of young romantics Genevieve LeFevre and Jude Nesbitt against the backdrop of Elliot Lake’s founding! (Archival gloves available, as some of the pieces can be quite fragile.)
Where has the Box been these past few months, you might ask? It was with the VESSEL Team, in the process of being digitised! Yes, VESSEL is working on a digital literature version of the Ephemera Storytelling Box, so that everyone can read every piece and explore the full story from anywere across the globe. The digital version of the ESB will launch by the end of summer, so keep an eye here – and on our Facebook page – for further details!
While we currently don’t have an office, feel free to contact us here via our contact page, or at our Facebook page, linked above.
VESSEL launched our Ephemera Storytelling Box here in Elliot Lake last month, on January 25th 2019 at the Lester B. Pearson Civic Centre. If you couldn’t join us, you can check out some photos and info from the launch after the jump – as well as a first digital glimpse of some of the ESB artefacts!

The VESSEL EPHEMERA STORYTELLING BOX will have its official (physical) launch Friday, January 25th at 7pm in the lobby of the Lester B. Pearson Civic Centre in Elliot Lake, Ontario! That’s next Friday, folks! In addition to the project itself, there will be readings and music.
There is no entrance fee, though donations to the VESSEL Transmedia Lab will be very welcome.
The VESSEL Transmedia Storytelling Lab is a community initiative that focuses on using new media storytelling to explore the cultures, histories and environment of Elliot Lake and the surrounding area. The initiative investigates how media representation can progress community renewal and build civic identity. The Transmedia Lab works with community partners to develop digital media education and literacy programming.
