Nuit Blanche {Paris + beyond}

Nuit Blanche has long been one of my favorite nights of the year. Even before I was living in Paris, I’d intentionally plan my visits to Paris to be here for the first Saturday in October to profiter from the sleepless night of art installations and events happening all around the city. This year marks the 10th anniversary edition, and to celebrate, new neighborhoods (including mine – Saint Georges!) are participating. The event is free and is designed to make art accessible to all, by taking it out of context for one night only, and giving people an excuse to explore the city in new ways. The entire program is available on their website, and over on Vingt Paris, I have created an insider’s guide to Nuit Blanche with some of my own favorite picks for the night, including helpful links to the program and iPhone app.

Other cities celebrating Nuit Blanche tomorrow night (Oct 1st) are: Brussels, Belgium, Brescia, Italy, La Valette, Malta, Kosice, Slovakia, Oran, Algeria, Toronto, Canada, Kyoto, Japan, and Palestine.
