Tale of a Town

February 10 to 20

Opening Reception Friday, February 10 at 2 p.m. Free and open to the public.

Tale of a Town is a site-specific theatre and media project that began in June 2016 when the project's Storymobile (a.k.a. recording booth on wheels) collected over 100 stories from Oakville local heroes, community stakeholders, neighbourhood residents and independent business owners in Oakville.
A selection of these stories assembled with stories collected in other Canadian communities are shared in this exhibition.

Oakville’s stories will also be integrated into a mobile exhibition that will be installed as a temporary showcase in various community centres throughout the town all year. Visit the Canada 150 page for more information.
