Many people think of art galleries as sterile places, full of things that you’re not allowed to touch made by dead people. Not very fun; but not very true either. One of the major aims of the Integrate Arts Festival is to remind people that artists actually live here in Victoria and they are creating […]

Pizzeria Prima Strada, a little pizza place on Bridge Street in downtown Victoria, with a second location in Cook Street Village, was disappointing, but may deserve another chance.
