My First Time: An Evening at Nuit Blanche

This year I attended my very first Scotiabank Nuit Blanche Toronto. I always had good intentions of going but since it only happens over one night a year, I kept missing it, only to hear about the event days later. 

This year was almost the same, but something prompted me to google its exact dates and I made sure to put it in my calendar and clearing the time for it. It wasn't going to slip through my fingers again!

If you don't know, the concept of Nuit Blanche, started in France, has been around since 1990 and in its modern form since 2001. Toronto, this year, celebrated its 10th year participating in the all-night celebration and exploration of contemporary art taking place in various locations dotted across the city centre.

Having now experienced Nuit Blanche I have a few ideas of how to make my next year's attendance more of a success and maybe it can help you too.

Now for some modern art installations at
