What is Nuit Blanche Taipei

“Nuit Blanche Taipei” is a nighttime art festival introduced to Taiwan in 2016, with Taipei as the host city. The event aims to bring culture and art to the streets, breaking away from traditional art exhibition formats, and encouraging interaction between art and the public. Nuit Blanche Taipei features three distinctive characteristics: free participation, nighttime scheduling, and grassroots involvement. The event is brimming with creativity, typically encompassing live performances, nocturnal art installations, street performances, and more, attracting art enthusiasts and citizens alike to enjoy a night that seamlessly blends art and culture.

The core idea of this event is to bring art to every corner of the city, allowing people to appreciate diverse art pieces at various urban landmarks. It has also sparked creativity within Taiwan’s art and culture scene. Nuit Blanche Taipei has become a highlight of Taiwan’s cultural and artistic landscape, drawing a large number of visitors each year to participate in and experience this vibrant and charming art extravaganza.
