Local Social Network for the Arts Community in Central Valley

I just came across this blog posting from CreativesDC:

"What do Paris, Toronto, Copenhagen, Madrid, Malta, Montreal, Sao Paulo, Lima, Santa Monica, Chicago, Miami Beach and six cities in the UK have in common? They all host an all night art and cultural festival known as Nuit Blanche (White Night), which lasts from sundown until sunrise on the first Saturday and Sunday in October...

These events are focused on the downtown core of the city (streets closed to cars) which becomes an art gallery unto itself, infused with museums, art galleries and cultural institutions offering free admission to a suite of creative events and experiences including art installations, performances (music, film, dance, performance art) and themed social gatherings. Rome's Nuit Blanche is one of the largest, attracting two million people via 400 events, while other cities focus on a more manageable 100."


I am thinking of organizing this in Fresno (of course with the help of FresnoArts members). We could start small this year and make it bigger every year after. Here's the wikipedia of Nuit Blanche. Pay particular attention to the last article on Nuit Blanche when it was held at Toronto and the subsequent challenges they faced or will face in the future.

So who's with me?

I think that's a great idea and I'd love to be a part of it.
