Nuit Blanche Toronto is Toronto’s free all-night contemporary art event that takes place October 1st 2016, where you can experience Toronto transformed by artists for one night only, all night long. Each year, the event features commissioned works by local, national and international artists, as well as independent projects by Toronto museums, galleries and institutions.

New Adventures in Sound Art (NAISA) is a non-profit organization, based in Toronto, that presents performances and installations spanning the entire spectrum of electroacoustic and experimental sound art. NAISA’s annual events include: the Deep Wireless Festival of Radio & Transmission Art in January/February the Sound Travels Festival of Sound Art in August, the SOUNDplay Festival in October/November, as well as the NAISA Sound Bash Series in March. The objectives of NAISA are to foster awareness and understanding locally, as well as nationally and internationally, in the cultural vitality of experimental sound art in its myriad forms of expression. This objective will be achieved through the exploration of new sound technologies in conjunction with the creation of cultural events and artifacts.
