Scotiabank’s 9th annual Nuit Blanche returns to the streets of Toronto on Saturday, October 4th. Starting at 6:53pm and running until sunrise on Sunday, Nuit Blanche will transform the city into an all-night art festival featuring over 120 art projects created by nearly 400 local, national, and international artists.
If you’re planning on attending the magical night of festivities, don’t forget to get involved with 1nspiration Night, an art installation which allows you, the audience, to get actively involved in the project. Tagged pictures of the night will be streamed live on Twitter and Instagram via #snbTO. The images streamed will be projected on a walkway of giant screens at 130 Spadina Ave.
This year the festival will expand into neighbourhoods and areas such as Chinatown/Spadina, Fort York, and the areas surrounding Bremner Blvd, making the streets of Toronto a gigantic (free) art festival. So even if you can’t make it to the hub of the fest, the surrounding neighbourhoods will also have a slew of art exhibits for your viewing pleasure.
Last year’s festivities attracted over one million people and generated $39.5 million, so you can imagine how extravagant this year’s night fest will be.
