Converse and Cook is seeking volunteers for a Community Storyteller Position and Community Cookbook Designer (a $1000 honorarium will be provided for the successful candidate).
Currently, Converse and Cook is interested in telling the story of how various Edmontonians are being resilient and keeping connected during this pandemic by creating an Edmonton community wide cookbook focused on comfort food. Through cultivating these stories and recipes, we will be able to capture the history of what is happening in Edmonton during this time, while also providing a source of comfort and hope to those feeling isolated and disconnected in our city. This cookbook is being funded in part by Edmonton Heritage Council. Community Storytellers will be tasked with helping interview some amazing Edmontonians and local businesses about how the pandemic has changes their operations and the role food has played in helping them build community during this time (some training will be provided). The Community Cookbook Designer will be tasked with designing the front and back covers and inside pages along with some other bits for the cookbook. All work done by these roles will be published in our upcoming cookbook and successful applications will receive a free copy of the cookbook and be invited to our in-person launch in 2022.
The deadline to apply for the Community Storyteller Position is 11:59pm MST on October 15, 2021.
