Berkeley Castle Management

As someone who works at Berkeley Castle, you are lucky to work in a building that is part of a very vibrant and engaged community.  Because this neighbourhood is located adjacent to what will be the Athletes Village for the PAN AM Games, a wide range of independent groups in the neighbourhood have been working together for over two years to create and art based legacy project that will be highlighted during the PAN AM Games.

This first completed part of the project is a delightful little book called FORTY-ONE Neighbours.  It’s a great memory of the PAN AM games, and tribute to this neighbourhood.  We will be making this book available for sale ($20 all in) at Berkeley’s Bistro and the (new) St. Lawrence Café.  

Book launch: Tuesday, April 14th - 6pm -St Lawrence Hall, 157 King St E., Toronto


Fifty-three students/authors from The Esplanade neighbourhood were given the challenge to discover the essence of a resident in each of the forty-one countries/territories participating in the Toronto 2015 Pan Am/Parapan Am Games. The student-driven narratives inspired accompanying commissioned pictures taken by forty international photographers. The result is one moving book, which both celebrates cultural differences between neighbouring countries and illuminates our common identity: yours to discover on April 14th, 2015, at FORTY-ONE Neighbours' book launch.


RSVP here:  (it’s a free event) 



After its launch on April 14th, 2015, FORTY-ONE Neighbours becomes a source of inspiration for a visual arts installation, a dance performance and a mural project – – all to be unveiled in our local park on July 4th 2015.
