Nuit Blanche Winnipeg 2018 is a free all-night exploration and celebration of contemporary art that takes place on the Saturday of the Culture Days weekend from dusk to dawn. Held annually since 2010, the events and exhibits attract thousands of people to the three zones of activity: St. Boniface, Downtown and the Exchange District. Nuit Blanche Winnipeg takes place on Treaty 1 Territory and on the ancestral lands of the Anishinaabe, Cree, Oji-Cree, Dakota and Dene Peoples and the homeland of the Métis Nation.
Ahead of this month’s Nuit Blanche, the Winnipeg Architecture Foundation is also hosting an ongoing exhibit about the history of the city’s Niakwa Park subdivision. The Niakwa Park exhibit runs until September 21st at 266 McDermot Avenue in downtown Winnipeg.
