From The Tale of a Town – Canada Facebook page

The Tale of a Town is a national oral history and theatre initiative aiming to capture the collective community memory of our country’s main streets, one story at a time.

They will be touring across Canada, gathering downtown stories in small towns and big cities alike, and are now in Windsor until August 18th.

Based out of the Storymobile, a trailer/recording studio they are looking for Windsorites to share their memories as part of a national oral-history project from Fixt Point Theatre.

Local community artists Sherry Campeau and Katie Swift will facilitate story gathering and work with local artists to create a performance celebrating the culmination of the project in Windsor.

Story gathering will take place at the foot of Ouellette Avenue daily from 10am to 1pm as well as at the Downtown Windsor Farmers Market on Saturday, August 15th, 2015 from 10am to noon.

The performances of collected stories will take place on Wednesday, August 26th, 2015 at 6pm, 7pm and 8pm at The Vision Corridor Park on the corner of Riverside Drive and Bruce Avenue.
