The Nuit Blanche concept came from Jean Blaise, the person who founded the Centre de recherche pour le développement culturel (Research Center for Cultural Development) in Nantes sometime in 1984, France.

In 2002, Blaise became the artistic director of the first Nuit Blanche, in Paris.

This year, Nuit Blanche will be having its 10th year conduct in Toronto.

On October 3 from 7 p.m., there will be more than 110 projects to be displayed across the city.


One of the artworks to be put on exhibit is that of street artist from Paris, JR. He is known for his "gorilla-style art and his work has been featured all over the world.", mentioned CBC.

According to Kristine Germann, programming manager for Toronto's cultural events, the event will surely make a great impact to the participants; It can invite them to laugh, be provoked, and also to take part in a social and political discourse.
