This week: how can art change a neighbourhood? We’ve got stories about community members’ hopes for how art could make Edmonton’s Alberta Avenue a safer, more welcoming place to live. And a story about a group of artists and researchers determined not to let history repeat itself on Vancouver’s Downtown Eastside: Herb Varley, Greg Masuda, and Jeff Masuda speak about the Right to Remain project.

This episode first aired on March 11, 2015.
