The Tale of a Town 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 that inspire the creation of performances and podcasts. To date, this innovative project has toured all 10 provinces and 2 territories; their last stop is here in Yellowknife, completing their tour of the entire country in time to mark the 150th anniversary of Canada in 2017!
