Nuit Blanche at the Aga Khan Museum
September 29, 2018 @ 7:00 pm - September 30, 2018 @ 7:00 amFree
Join us for an unparalleled, all-night celebration of art, music, storytelling, comedy, and performance. It will illuminate the cross-cultural interactions that shape Toronto. Our Nuit Blanche 2018 event, Arrivals and Encounters, features more than 30 mostly-local artists from a variety of traditions and ten unique spaces. You’re invited to explore what it means to live in a city of constant change.
Enjoy performances inside Mongolian yurts, an all-American Airstream, and an Indigenous teepee. Have your fortune told through dance. Immerse yourself in a multimedia installation, and experience the power of whirling dervishes. Inspired by the many people who call Toronto home — immigrants, settlers, refugees, and Indigenous peoples — there is something for everyone at Arrivals and Encounters. Map your own journey here at the Aga Khan Museum; the Aga Khan Park; and the Ismaili Centre, Toronto and choose your own encounters.
