Just going into HERO’s downtown is magical – full of fantasy and fun this is THE comic shop to stop into. Meeting the owner Bram takes all that to another level. We were interested to hear his story of slowly working his way up in the comic world, from employee to building and business owner, he told us about the alternative shopping scene in London and why the downtown in any city is the place to get great records, comics, books and art. Bram also spoke to us about students who shut down Dundas and Richmond in protest and it sounds like it was a sight to see!
ANYONE GOT PICS OF THIS PROTEST?? SEND THEM INTO US!
Today we got the storymobile parked right out front of the Downtown London office. I was on the megaphone and Charles set up the equipment. We heard from ALLLLL kinds of people who had differing views about downtown and what it means to them. Ice cream was traded and stories were recorded. We truly cannot wait to listen closely to what everyone had to say. It is in the layering of contrasting views with the points of connection that will allow The Tale of LONDON Town to resonate with everyone who comes to celebrate downtown with us when our show takes the stage of the streets next year! Stay posted for more details….
