Independent Project Program

The all-night contemporary art event, Nuit Blanche Toronto 2022, will focus on producing the work of artists accepted to the Independent Project Program for Nuit Blanche 2020 and 2021. New applications are not being accepted.

To participate in Nuit Blanche Toronto 2023, Toronto-based artists, museums, galleries, cultural and educational institutions, neighbourhoods and BIAs will be invited to submit proposals later this year. Proposals should have a strong visual component, be rooted in contemporary art practice and relate to the curatorial theme of Nuit Blanche Toronto.

Independent Projects are self-produced, self-funded partners of Nuit Blanche Toronto. The projects activate and transform the city and are situated in neighbourhoods across the city in traditional and non-traditional spaces – public realm, parks, galleries, storefronts, office towers, streets, sidewalks, etc.
