About Long Winter:
Long Winter is Toronto's essential all-ages, pay-what-you-can inter-arts series that takes place throughout our coldest season. Featuring over 200 local artists/collectives and welcoming nearly 5,000 participants from November-March, Long Winter animates multiple rooms on multiple floors, transforming spaces into immersive, collaborative environments. Events are dense and eclectic, showcasing a broad cross-section of the best in Toronto-area DIY and underground scenes. Featured work includes performance art, theatre and dance, large-scale sculptural installations, projections (single and dual screen videos, still images), visual installations (print, painting, photography collage) and interactive presentations including original video games by local programmers. Initially housed at the Great Hall on Queen Street West, Long Winter has programmed teeming shows at venues ranging from the Gladstone Hotel, to the Hearn Generating Station (Luminato), to the Galleria Mall. We are passionate about integrating diverse artistic communities and culture; gathering some of the most exciting, cutting-edge local talent under one roof.
