White Night (Nuit Blanche)
Have you guys ever heard of Nuit Blanche? No? Yes? Maybe? Well it’s an arts festival that runs all night (from 7pm to 7am) where you get to literally wander the streets of your city and stumble upon interesting, unique, crazy and amazing pieces of art (anything from interactive pieces, to art work, to laser shows, bands etc.)
The festival started in Paris in 1989 and has grown into a worldwide event in more than 120 countries. Last night was the first time the event was held in an Australian city, and Melbourne was out in full force for it. (Note: they changed the name here to “White Night.”)
This year it’ll be held in Toronto on Saturday, October 5 and I’m already excited for it (funny to think I’ll be home then!). And if you have the opportunity to go (NYC, Montreal, Calgary, Toronto, Paris, London, Barcelona, and many more!) I highly suggest you get a group of people together and enjoy this free, worldwide, event because it’s amazing what some people come up with!
