This time of year we're usually starting to talk about ArtPrize but this year we've got a different style of art event to get excited about.
It's called Project 1: Crossed Lines and Kevin Buist the Project 1 Artistic Director talks with us about how this event is more than just art.
Project 1 will taking over different parts of the city as a way to bring the community together by crossing the lines that divide our city.
