The Tale of a Town - Canada is a nationwide oral history and theatre initiative aiming to capture the collective community memory of Canada’s main streets, one story at a time. This cultural project has been touring the country, visiting small towns and big cities alike, collecting oral histories through interviews with independent business owners, local heroes, community stakeholders, and neighbourhood residents. This national venture culminates this year, in a multi-platform celebration of the country’s main street culture for Canada’s 150th anniversary!

The Tale of a Town - Canada is created and produced by FIXT POINT, a theatre and media company based in Toronto and is being developed in collaboration with The National Arts Centre of Canada.
