Description Edit

Artists, musicians, poets, teachers and other interested in art tend to congregate in and around the Crowsea area of Newford — hanging out in clubs, cafes, coffee shops, galleries and various shops and restaurants. They mingle and share their interests, and sometimes their lives intersect or even intertwine.
