Arts Renaissance in Industrial Space

Once again, Toronto's loss will be Hamilton's gain:

One of the aerialists said if they lose their right to live in the building, they might have to move to Hamilton, where there is plenty of cheap industrial space for artists. Toronto will be poorer if that happens.

It's wonderful to see our old industrial and commercial buildings becoming hubs of creativity as artists continue to flock here from other cities.

If you haven't experienced the new arts community on James North, this Friday is a perfect chance at the monthly Art Crawl - Toronto artists welcome.
