Love is in the Air … This Week in Atlantic Canada

Par Martin van Maële

Love is in the air this week, but the Atlantic Canadian arts are our Valentine every day of the year! (too sappy?)

If you would like to take that special someone out on a date, or multiple dates this week, what’s more romantic than an exhibit, a play, an art lecture, a dance party or a cabaret? And if you’re single don’t be scared to mingle…You may meet your arts-loving soul mate attending an event, such as one these featured below.
