Share your memories of Oakville as part of the Tale of the Town theatre and media project

Monday, May 30, 2016 – for immediate release

Share your memories of Oakville as part of the Tale of the Town theatre and media project

Visit the Storymobile at various locations from June 9 to 26, 2016

Have you watched downtown Oakville change over the years? If you have a compelling community story or memory to share you won’t want to miss the Tale of a Town project coming to Oakville next month.

The Tale of a Town is a site-specific theatre and media project that captures the collective memories of Canada’s main streets, one story at a time. The initiative begins by gathering the histories of main streets and downtown cores through personal interviews with the people who live there.

“Oakville is a town with a rich history and I encourage everyone with a great story to participate in this unique opportunity to bring these stories to life once again” said Mayor Rob Burton.

The Tale of a Town project is currently touring Ontario and the project’s Storymobile will be visiting various locations in Oakville from June 9 to 26, 2016. Stories gathered during these interviews will inspire the creation of a performance installation where submissions will be showcased through a theatrical, interactive platform at the Oakville Centre for the Performing Arts later this year. Stories collected in Ontario will feed into the Tale of a Town-Canada project to become a multi-platform celebration of the country’s main street culture in tribute to Canada’s 150th anniversary in 2017.

Oakville residents are invited to visit the Tale of a Town-Oakville Storymobile when it stops at the following locations:

Towne Square:

June 9 (12-5 p.m.), June 10 (4– 9 p.m.), June 11 (8 a.m.–2 p.m.) June 17 (4–9 p.m.), June 18 (8 a.m.–2 p.m.) June 19 (noon–5 p.m.), June 21 (4– 9 p.m.), and June 25 (9 a.m.–2 p.m.)

Lakeside Park:

June 12 (noon–4 p.m.)

Coronation Park:

June 20 (10 a.m.–2 p.m.)

Oakville Soccer Club:

June 24 (5–8 p.m.)

Oakville RibFest at Sheridan College:

June 26 (noon–4 p.m.)

Visit the Tale of the Town-Oakville project page for more information. To book an interview session, email events@oakville.ca
