Helping you navigate the zones

Information Ambassadors

Find more than 150 friendly Information Ambassadors located at all information tents and wandering through all zones. Volunteers will be wearing white Scotiabank Nuit Blanche jackets. Keep your eyes open for them!


Trained guides, called docents, will be available at many of the Exhibition sites to offer information and facilitate your understanding and enjoyment of the installations. Docents meet directly with the artists and curators to develop an in-depth comprehension of the work, the creative process and how to interpret the work so that they are able to share this information with you. Look for docents in white jackets located near many of the Exhibition Projects.

Maps & Signs

In each zone all Exhibition Projects and Independent Projects have been assigned a map number. You’ll find these numbers beside the project descriptions on the website and in the event guide. Look for signs at the event with the correlating number to help you find your way and plan your route.
