Montreal. A city whose culture radiates regardless of what season we’re in. Spending a winter in Montreal can get freezing cold (we just had a week of -30! & survived it luckily!) Though keeping active and participating in the numerous activities around the city makes the winters pass by in the blink of an eye. This weekend marks the 10th anniversary of one of my favorite nights in Montreal “Nuit Blanche”. An inspiring night with 5 different districts around the city filled with visual arts, music, film, theater, dance, literature and more. The city comes alive right in the heart of winter. Over 185 activities & an underground art passage, take a stroll, and hop into the many places offering free events!
You can download a map depending on what district you will be in, and join myself and many Montrealers for 24 hours of art, exhibitions & music! Here are a few events that I’m looking forward to:
ABC : MTL—A Self-Portrait of Montreal / CCA : Vernissage of the final phase of our latest project, ABC : MTL—A Self-Portrait of Montréal. For one night only, especially for the Nuit blanche, drop in on performances by Montréal artists, and catch the live bands, karaoke, and family activities. www.cca.qc.ca/nuitblanche
