We've seen it all before. Soho and the meatpacking district in New York. Williamsburg. Queen West (and now West West in Toronto). Artists move in, fix up neighbourhoods, make them cool, then come the good bars and restos and the galleries, and then, eventually, the rest of the world figures it out and moves in. Mark my words: it will be the artists that bring the masses to Dartmouth.
On Wednesday night, there's a DANG! event (Dartmouth Art Neighbours Get-together). It's an informal get together for Dartmouth visual artists, poets, filmmakers, musicians, dancers and more to meet each other, 6-8pm, in the Ram's Head Room at the Celtic Corner Public House (69 Alderney Drive).
