After the enormously successful inaugural White Night Ballarat in 2017, it will once again transform the historic regional centre again in 2018.Inspired by the international Nuit Blanche movement that began in Paris in 2002 and came to Australia as White Night Melbourne in 2013, White Night Ballarat is a free, cultural event from 7:00pm to 2:00am– the first of its kind in regional Australia.It is the city as you know it, but reimagined and transformed under the ephemeral cloak of night. A night where the surreal seems real, White Night Ballarat is a rare opportunity to experience the city in a different light. The event will weave a spell over the city’s CBD, transforming the impossible into the possible through installation, lighting, exhibitions, street performances, film, music, dance and interactive events.
