The project culminated in a live performance installation at the Esplanade Arts & Heritage Centre. In 2016, we returned the Esplanade to feature Medicine Hat stories alongside stories from across the country in the first workshop iteration of our National Performance of The Tale of a Town - Canada.

Listen to some of our Alberta stories on our interactive storymap.

“Harry Veiner was our mayor for years, and he was a very good owner and operator, wasn’t he? He always had the time of day to talk to you. I think it was every Saturday, if you were a woman and you were shopping there he’d hand out red roses. Yeah, he knew what he was doing.
— Hazel Grey, Storyteller, Medicine Hat, AB
