The Nuit Blanche Renegade Parade

The Rothko Institute - Toronto, Canada

Participatory Parade

Art is experience. It’s the grand spectacle, adventure, magic, and sometimes it’s you.

The Nuit Blanche Renegade Parade is an experiment in experience. It’s the idea that by coming together in a shared event we can create something that is both a collective unified spirit and a uniquely personal act of expression.

We invite you, the wonderful magical unique person you are, to pARTicipate in an act of creating your own personal experience during Toronto’s most magical night of art and wonder.  You have the tools already- a voice, an imagination, a view of the world that’s all your own.  So stand with us, march with us for no other reason than to celebrate a night when we all come together to roam the mad streets and discover the secrets of a white hot nuit.

The Parade is a collaborative effort coordinated by The Rothko Institute in conjuction with several Toronto-based artist collectives.
