In celebration of Canada’s 150 birthday The Tale of a Town converted a shipping container into a sound recording studio and public listening booth that was placed inside Inspiration Village in downtown Ottawa. Opening on May 20th and running continuously for 110 days,  our storygathering artists captured over 700 interviews from people all over the country. Over 300 hours of Canadian perspective was listened to by passersby and tens of thousands of Canadians were engaged.
