Event description

Description

The Tale of a Town - Canada is a nationwide theatre and media 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. After visiting every province and territory, this summer the project tackles Canada’s longest main street, Highway 11.

In partnership with the City of Thunder Bay, the Thunder Bay Community Foundation and the HUB Bazaar, The Tale of a Town brings their storymobile (mobile recording studio) to conduct interviews about our memories of Thunder Bay’s downtown areas between September 13 and 21, 2017. Stories gathered during these interviews will inspire the creation of a live performance installation that will incorporate audio, archives, music and soundscape on September 30 at the HUB Bazaar as part of the City of Thunder Bay Culture Days.

This is a free performance, but advance registration is recommended!
