Do you have a story to tell about your Town?

Tale of a Town Canada is a transmedia storytelling initiative that celebrates people and places through the gathering, mapping and theatrical presentation of our living memories of main streets and downtowns across Canada.
The story mobile has already been in Labrador. Now it's in St. john's. Charles Ketchabaw is with Tale of a Town. He's looking forward to hearing your stories about shops that are no longer there and the store owners who made shopping such an unforgettable experience.
