Today is Multiculturalism Day in Canada.
Food connects us to culture and heritage. It’s a welcoming way to share culture and heritage, and to celebrate multiculturalism.
Bread is a collection of short films highlighting six Canadian women from different backgrounds and their recipes for bread. Along with showing us how they make bread, the women talk about their personal experiences and cultural backgrounds.
Artist and social innovator Mariette Sluyter wanted to explore how baking bread relates to the way we connect to our culture. She had baked with seniors and saw how it brought them together. She felt that the natural storytelling that evolves through sharing recipes could help break cultural barriers.
