Nuit Blanche 2017: Many Possible Futures
To mark Canada's 150th anniversary in 2017, the City of Toronto has launched "TO Canada with Love", a year-long program of celebrations, commemorations and exhibitions honouring this milestone. As part of "TO Canada with Love", Nuit Blanche Toronto has created an overarching theme for the entire 2017 event, entitled Nuit Blanche 2017: Many Possible Futures. Applicants to the Independent Projects program are encouraged to look forward to the many possible futures of Canada in their proposals, addressing notions of identify, nationhood, migration, reconciliation, settlement, and the natural landscape, among others.
