A looming brick façade runs nearly the length of a city block along Richmond Street West at Spadina Avenue. Enduring and unassuming, 401 Richmond, a heritage warehouse-turned arts and culture hub, holds its ground in the midst of towering developments. This Nuit Blanche, walk through the front doors and find yourself in a veritable urban oasis where warm brick walls, antique hardwood floors, and potted plants lining the labyrinthine hallways form the backdrop for an array of artist projects, all under one roof. Artists, cultural producers, microenterprises, galleries, festivals, and shops fill the building and give it life. At 401, the seeds of great ideas are nurtured and allowed to flourish. Support, growth, and life characterize many aspects of the building from its green spaces to its diverse tenant community, and underpin the themes for this year’s event. 401 Richmond offers A Secret Garden in the concrete jungle.

A heritage building filled with a vibrant mix of installations, performances, tenant-gallery exhibitions and more!
