The collapse of the cod fishery in Newfoundland saw thousands leave remote coastal communities for the cities. W5's Seamus O'Regan has the story of one determined woman who is looking to reverse the trend with the help of the arts. The once struggling Fogo Island, Newfoundland is undergoing a cultural renaissance, hoping to lure tourists and artists from around the world. One islander is gambling tens of millions of her own dollars that her hometown can be a hotspot for the arts.
