The Tale of a Town
In partnership with The City of St. John's and Rocket Bakery
The Tale of a Town – Canada is capturing the collective community memory of our country’s main streets, one story at a time by touring across Canada, gathering downtown stories in small towns and big cities alike, and creating performance in the capital city of each province and territory.
With their “Storymobile” (a travel trailer converted into a mobile recording studio) in tow, they will record oral histories in person through scheduled and impromptu interviews with independent business owners, local heroes, community stakeholders, and neighborhood residents.
Charles Ketchabaw and his wife Lisa Marie DiLiberto traveled to Arts and Culture Centres across Newfoundland and Labrador and have returned to St. John’s to share the stories they’ve collected.
