About the event
The event Nuit Blanche sur Tableau Noir was founded in 1995 by Michel Depatie with the goal of implementing art in the city and especially in the public space. The desire to reach new audiences made of this event a forerunner in regard to the notions of cultural mediation. This event supported by the Avenue Development Corporation business community of Mount Royal was betting heavily on twinning business-arts to revitalize the business. It opened the way for the transformation of traditional trade fairs to quality cultural activity. Michel Depatie assumed the artistic direction of the event from 1995-2013.
