A CURATED CONVERSATION OF ART AND SUBSTANCE
In January 2016, Sidewalk Citizen Bakery started a monthly cultural dinner salon. Called Tzavta, the Hebrew word for the act of sitting together, sharing food and conversation among friends, the vision was to create an intellectual welcoming space. As a bakery whose existence and name was inspired by Jane Jacobs’ sidewalk ballet described in The Death and Life of Great American Cities, we are committed to the public sphere and the city’s cultural fabric.
We curate speakers whose profession and vocation needs to be better understood. Our conversation topics cover all aspects of humanity, culture and science. For each salon, we create an intricate hearty meal in honour of our speaker inspired by their passion, taste, heritage or whim. As well, we commission an original work of art which is printed on the evening’s menu, a keepsake for our guests.
