Nuit Rose 2016

NUIT ROSE takes over Toronto with a night of queer contemporary art and performance across the city!

On SATURDAY, JUNE 25TH 2016, the Church/Wellesley Village and West Queen West neighbourhoods will be transformed by queer artists with provocative, cutting edge works in both indoor and outdoor spaces.

The theme of this year’s Nuit Rose is NIGHT SHIFT. Expect transformational encounters with art that shifts perceptions, paradigms, identities, and realities. It will be a night of celebration and adventure reflecting all things that happen between dusk and dawn.

Nuit Rose is FREE and open to all.
