Join members of the Rover team to celebrate the 5th anniversary of our arts review site on Saturday, November 16th at 7 p.m. Join us for a glass of wine and a few kind words from various members of the team. We'll also be opening a discussion of where the site needs to go in the coming months and years.
Since launching in the fall of 2008, Rover has published more than 1970 reviews, interviews and comment pieces on a wide range of arts available in Montreal, including books, films, TV, visual arts, dance, theatre, music, as well as trends, festivals and events, including politics. Some 300 writers have contributed to the site - more than a million words. Meet the Rover team and come prepared to give us your feedback. Comment on the Rover site outnumbers posts by 2 to 1! Let's keep up the momentum.
For more on Rover's origins and history, see the site.
