All sorts of interesting experiences await you on this wonderful, all night celebration of the arts. It’s a free event that runs from dusk ’til dawn, and if you’re lucky enough to have one near you, I highly recommend bringing along your kids and a bunch of their friends. Not only do they have tons of fun, but it opens up their minds about what art can be. They get to see some pretty unusual stuff, some of it interactive, and share their opinions about it. They also get to stay up later than usual, drink plenty of hot chocolate to stay warm, and wander the streets with thousand of others, in what is a very festive atmosphere. How cool is that?
Over 1oo cities are participating, although not necessarily on the same night. I’ll be checking out a few things here in Toronto, and hopefully you’ll have an opportunity to do the same near you.
Here are a few links for Nuit Blanche to give you an idea of what goes on:
