#nb2017 Nuit Blanche around the corner

Art Night Long is coming to Toronto September 30th from sunset to sunrise. I have to get working on my light bike again to get it ready for the adventure and review this year's program. And I can't forget the anti-Nuit excitement from the Les Rues Des Refuses, although nothing has been posted about 2017 events.
There appears to be Revolution and Porta-Party coming to Nathan Phillips Square, Disturbing Graffiti in Graffiti Alley and Horses at Queens Park.

"The presence of horses might come as a surprise, heightening our perception of the city as an environment virtually exclusively designed for humans. Companion pets are tolerated as long as they are bridled by safety measures and movement constraints. The horses momentarily return to the city - if only for this night - as another species, a formidable one, and one that stands in place for species whose sentience is not commonly recognized in our language, yet once were companions that occupied an important place in the city. They heighten the perception of the city as a place from which most animals continue to be expelled, declared as pests, taken to slaughter, shot, or are kept in the safe enclosures of the zoo. The introduction of horses into public space is a curator driven project by Barbara Fischer."
