The 15th annual Nuit Blanche Toronto is reimagined to deliver a special online edition to ensure the safety of attendees and artists during the COVID-19 pandemic. The virtual event presents five streams of programming including talks, podcasts, live streams, Nuit History and augmented and virtual reality artworks. Artistic Director Julie Nagam’s curatorial theme – The Space Between Us – focuses on the connections across urban, polar and pacific landscapes revealing the space between us as a potential site for sharing knowledge.
