In the final episode of this first season, Daniel walks through Old East Village with Adam Sturgeon - proud father, Polaris prize nominated musician and award-winning business owner of Rezonance, a screen printing internship program for Indigenous youth. As their route takes them past many inspiring public art installations, murals and mosaics, they discuss the complex make-up of the businesses, services, homes and residents of OEV community. Adam shares his thoughts with us on the issues of 'houselessness' in London and the growing divide between the underserved and affluent Londoners. He stresses that culture is always at top of mind for him as a father, in is music, in his work with youth and his advocacy for the First Nations communities. Daniel and Adam pass many iconic businesses whose strong roots in OEV have given the neighbourhood a distinct feel - Aeolian Hall, The Market at Western Fair District, London Clay Art Centre, Libro Credit Union, and of course So Inviting Dumplings - and are quick to share their varying dumpling preparation recipes. Boil? Fry? How do you 'dumpling'? Adam and Daniel open the invitation for you to meet the passionate residents of this amazing part of London and discover the many hidden gems in OEV.
