As part of the Scotiabank Nuit Blanche: The Ontario Science Centre’s !dea Gallery and the University of Windsor’s Incubator Lab invite you to join a parade of local nocturnal ecology in ceremonial procession of bioart projects departing from our home-base tent at CAMH at 9 pm, 1 am, and 5 am. Costumed artists/performers, joined by musicians and the public, will illuminate and reveal a menagerie of living organisms via digital media and phosphorescence. Building on the success of last year’s Art and Ecology Parade organized in Windsor, the ECO NUIT PARADE will take to the streets of Toronto. A home-base tent for the parade will reside on the front lawn of Toronto’s CAMH on Queen Street where the public will be able to interact with parade participants, and see the portable exhibits up close. Throughout the night members of the public will be asked to join the parade, marching along a 30 min route through downtown Toronto. Musicians and the public will join approx. 30-40 artists and performers. Costumes will glow in the dark! Devices will emit sound and light! Spectators eager to join the parade will be given masks, streamers, noisemakers, and take-home lab experiments. Thank you to our Partners: University of Windsor INTERMINUS Research Group
