Visit the Storymobile from June 9 to 26, 2016 in Oakville, Tale of Town Theatre & Media Project

Oakville – Have you watched downtown Oakville change over the years? If you have a compelling community story or memory to share you won’t want to miss the Tale of a Town project coming to Oakville next month.

The Tale of a Town is a site-specific theatre and media project that captures the collective memories of Canada’s main streets, one story at a time. The initiative begins by gathering the histories of main streets and downtown cores through personal interviews with the people who live there.

“Oakville is a town with a rich history and I encourage everyone with a great story to participate in this unique opportunity to bring these stories to life once again” said Mayor Rob Burton.

The Tale of a Town project is currently touring Ontario and the project’s Storymobile will be visiting various locations in Oakville from June 9 to 26, 2016. Stories gathered during these interviews will inspire the creation of a performance installation where submissions will be showcased through a theatrical, interactive platform at the Oakville Centre for the Performing Arts later this year. Stories collected in Ontario will feed into the Tale of a Town-Canada project to become a multi-platform celebration of the country’s main street culture in tribute to Canada’s 150th anniversary in 2017.
