Nuit Blanche Toronto 2022

Toronto's long night of contemporary art is finally here as the city comes alive from sunset on Saturday, October 1 to sunrise on Sunday, October 2, 2022. Over 150 artworks are spread around downtown, Etobicoke, North York and the waterfront waiting to be discovered by all who want to explore. Nuit began in Toronto in 2006 and continues after a short break due to Covid-19 precautions.
From the City's website, "Led by inaugural Artistic Director Dr. Julie Nagam, Nuit Blanche’s curatorial theme, The Space Between Us, invites artists to transform the city by creatively sharing stories about their connection to place while bridging cultures and connecting with communities and the environment."
