An interactive exhibit showcasing the personal stories and memories of Oakville community members will be on display at the Queen Elizabeth Community Cultural Centre (QEPCCC) from February 11 to 20, 2017.
Hosted by the Town of Oakville, in partnership with FIXT POINT Arts and Media, The Tale of a Town exhibit is part of a national storytelling project that gathers the rich histories of main streets and downtown cores through personal interviews with the people who live there.
In June 2016 the project’s Storymobile (a recording booth on wheels) gathered over 100 stories from local Oakville heroes, community stakeholders, neighbourhood residents and independent business owners. The exhibit features active listening stations, a quote wall, an activity station and a recording booth to continue to capture new stories.
In September the exhibit will be brought to life, alongside stories from across Canada, in a stage performance piece at the Oakville Centre for the Performing Arts.
The exhibit is on display in the Main Gallery of QEPCCC located at 2302 Bridge Road. Admission is free.
