“I really like visual arts, dance, literature and cinema. The arts are just something I can’t live without. I couldn’t see myself living in a city where I couldn’t express myself or see self-expression in a common, regular way. It just makes life so much more interesting!
Living in the Mile End provides me with an opportunity to be exposed to all sorts of creative people. When the first nice day of spring hits, it’s insane. I love being able to walk on the street and see so many artists. I used to live on St-Urbain and St-Viateur, and I’d walk out of my house and be in a pool of people. The energy is fantastic! This diversity is what inspires me and what makes the area such a great place to live.”
