FiXT POiNT

Founded in 2006 and incorporated as a not-for-profit organization in 2011, FiXT POiNT is a Toronto-based arts & media company with national reach. To date we've interviewed over 3000 Canadians from every province and territory in almost 200 communities in our storymobiles (recording studios on wheels). We have aired dozens of audio stories on CBC (Fresh Air, Podcast Playlist, Holiday Programming etc.), edited and posted hundreds of oral histories on our storymap and recently produced two seasons of a TV/Web Series for TVO. Most recently we were awarded Touring Artist of the Year from CAPACOA (Canadian Arts Presenting Association).

    FiXT POiNT provides training in audio recording and editing, narrative shaping and interview and outreach techniques to local artists and community members. In addition, we provide guidance and resources as we empower our participants to gather oral histories from their communities and present these recordings back to the public through mixed media installations and performance art. These pieces speak on themes of community, history preservation, empathy and combatting marginalization. 
  • Mandate/Mission:
    Our mandate is to inspire audiences and artists to imagine change, and our mission is to promote local culture and preserve local heritage through the telling of tales across multiple platforms. We endeavour to be leaders in public engagement, embedding training and outreach into our process of creation and dissemination. 
  • ArtBridging Section:
    We'd love to be able to offer our digital skills, including video, audio recording and live streaming. We could benefit from mutual promotion, for example, sharing information on your latest projects to our network of past participants and in return receiving the same from you. Please reach out if you can think of other ways in which we could benefit one another.
