Nuit blanche 2020: A New World in One Night

Event, in English and French, 29 February 2020 to 1 March 2020, 8pm

Join us for six hours of alternative pasts and sci-fi futures, rare films, music, and dancing. The galleries are open all night while several free activities take place across the spaces of the CCA. There will also be a cash bar.

8pm to 11pm, in the Shaughnessy House

This workshop proposes an updated version of a ritual from the Russian Revolution when babies were given names like Electrification. Since names often represent what their parents wish for them, we’re going to rename ourselves for what we believe in today.

Drop in anytime during the workshop.
