Poetry, Performance & Protest invites Nuit Blanche Toronto audiences to sit or stand (whatever's comfortable!) and engage in a discussion about the multiple meanings and definitions of Canadian values. At the top of every half hour, a poet or a performance artist will facilitate these conversations as well as perform a few pieces about the subject at hand. Audience members are encouraged to respond to the pieces performed and engage with both the performers and their fellow spectators.
Protest signs that marry the political and the artistic in their designs will create a circular amphitheatre. These placards will serve the dual purpose of becoming an art installation and of constructing a safe and positive space for the exchange of ideas and the appreciation of art.
Diaspora Dialogues presents new fiction, poetry and drama that reflect the complexity of Toronto, through the eyes of its richly diverse communities.
