Long Winter is an all-ages inter-arts festival that takes place throughout the winter months. Now in its sixth season, the Long Winter series has emerged as a unique event in the city of Toronto. Taking place in iconic buildings around Toronto, from the Great Hall to the Art Gallery of Ontario to the Galleria Mall, these spaces are transformed for a single night of notable artistic collaboration. Featuring the works and installations of over 250 artists/collectives in a range of mediums, our programming aims to provide a platform for the experimental work of local artists, to challenge the expectations and foster creative interactions between audiences and spaces.
