imageAs the L.PC.Village becomes further gentrified by places like the Drake, this community of artists is finding it time to move on [again]. Rents and housing prices have made it impossible for artists and cultural producers to move into this neighbourhood.

It is ‘interesting’ to watch the change in the neighbourhood. Now – artists are the discounted wallpaper needed to grease the wheels of cool and hip for the new owner and his desired patrons. We’re now the flavouring for the neighbourhood so that the folks with the expense account lunches can – as we say – come slumming.
