Nuit Blanche (literally White Night, en francais) is an all night celebration of the arts that takes place around the world. The concept came from France in 1984 where galleries, museums and music halls were encouraged to open late during fall or winter, traditionally less tourist visiting seasons. The celebration took hold in cities such as Barcelona, Buenos Aires, Cairo, New York, and Paris among others. Although not necessarily the same dates, each had the same concept in mind, to bring arts and culture to the masses and free of charge. From performances by well-known artists to independent exhibitionists, the art was for all to embrace and enjoy.
