The current format of The White Night or La Noche en Blanco began in Paris on the 5th of October 2002. They established an all night festival to celebrate and highlight the city’s contemporary art scene. The idea for the current format of the white night came from the Paris dept mayor Christophe Girard. Girard decided to shorten the previous format of the festival which would span over the period of 6 days and took place in Nantes, another French city. The idea for an all night arts festival quickly grow to other major cities across the world.
