This coming Saturday, October 2nd, from sunset to sunrise, we invite you to join Toronto's transformation into a celebration of contemporary art.

At the Kapisanan Philippine Centre for Arts and Culture, however, this year's Nuit Blanche just got browner. In conjunction with Les Rues des Refuses (the renegade guide for off-program Nuit Blanche events), we invite you to experience NUIT BRUNE, an open mic/poetry jam fundraiserΒ  like no other you've seen or heard.

This year's main event will feature talented spoken word artists and poets who grew out of this year's Poetry is our Second Language (PSL) Season 3.

After four weeks of intense learning, writing and performing, the poets are ready to roll out their works in an epic, final poetry performance. The best part? A portion of the event proceeds will go to charity. Making a difference never sounded so sick!

After the success of last year's event, "Charity is also our Second Language," which supported relief efforts for the many victims whose homes were ravaged by typhoons and tropical storms in the Philippines, the K is bringing back another chance for you to REACH OUT and make a difference. Charity details to follow, along with the list of performers!

Stay tuned for special guests on the mic. Feeling gutsy? You too could have your chance in the spotlight! Open mic runs until 3 in the A.M.

Suggested donation: $5 Generosity is welcome at the doorstep of 167 Augusta Ave.!

Hope to see you there, Toronto!
