From 2015 to 2017, FIXT POINT brought The Tale of a Town project to 24 communities across Ontario, gathering interviews and creating podcasts and performances in both French and English, which were funded  largely by the Ontario Trillium Foundation.  This three year initiative was made possible with the support of Ontario Trillium Foundation multi-year funding, Ontario 400, and Ontario 150 programs, as well as local community presenting partners across the province. 

After touring to each province and territory, this national venture culminated in a live multi-platform celebration of the country’s main street culture, to mark Canada’s 150th anniversary in 2017 - including a four-month residency at Ottawa's Inspiration Village and a nationally-touring show.
