2019 Theme: Continuum

The city of Toronto and its inhabitants are in a constant state of becoming. With shifting boundaries, new developments and changing perspectives we are invested in the desire for a change in experiences, viewpoints, landscapes, and ideas.

This progression follows many paths through the night of Nuit Blanche. The cycle of creation and destruction that simultaneously depletes and feeds, the elevation of the noble into a place of renown nobility, the challenge of finding inner calm and enlightenment in the midst of it all, underlined by the ever-present renewal of night into day. All are part of the continuum. Is there peace without enduring commotion? Is destruction actually the end of something, or does it mark a new beginning? How can we know there is more to our existence without the contrast and comparison? 

In a world that feels increasingly polarized, there is a critical need for nuanced conversations and intersectional perspectives. From dusk to dawn, Nuit Blanche Toronto plants seeds of change addressing the more compelling and complex parts of our existence, as individuals, as communities and as a city. In this place of potential, process, awakening and evolution exists.

Note for 2019 Applicants
