Ruminations from the rust-belt revival in Canada's Steel Town on whether artists are the "foot-soldiers of gentrification".

The question under consideration in this documentary podcast is: are artists a positive force when they colonize low-income urban areas, or do they provide the Trojan horse that allows real estate interests to come in and drive prices out of ordinary people's reach?
Produced by Stephen Dale with support from the Ontario Arts Council's media arts program, with research by Sarah Hipworth, and assistance from Adrian Shuman and our friends at CFMU-FM. Theme music is by Greg Clarke - you can find more of his work at cdbaby.com.
