The concept is simple: each issue explores a different city by telling the stories of one single street.

Flaneur has already dedicated an issue to streets in Berlin and Leipzig in Germany.

Now, the editors are spending two months in Montreal, where they are collecting material for an issue dedicated to Bernard Street.

Cinq à Six host Jeanette Kelly met with Flaueur founder Ricarda Messner at Le Dépanneur Café on Bernard Street.

The Future

This week on on Cinq à Six we think about the future of traditional art forms.

We speak to the people behind the MSO's multi-dimensional installation at the futuristic SATosphere dome at the Société des Arts Technologiques, and get Maestro Kent Nagano's feelings about mixing his symphonic music with video art. 

Writers, bloggers, publishers and booksellers have spent part of the week in a blue-sky contemplation of one of our most defining cultural forms: literature. Panelists Katia Grubisic, the Canada Council`s Arash Mohtashami-Maali and Christopher diRaddo bring some of the discussion to our studio. 

And we take you behind the scenes of the world premiere of the play Unseamly, which rips apart the seams of the retail fashion industry and examines the complex sexual dynamics behind fashion marketing.
