Getting ready for la Nuit Blanche

The Nuit Blanche, the annual all-night artistic happening in Paris, is back upon us this Saturday. If you want to get the best from the event, or if you want to get involved in some small way, here are a few 'before the event' suggestions.

Download the iPhone application
The city of Paris has prepared a free application that details the events taking place, helps you to plan your itinery, and will provide a live news feed during the event.

Donate a t-shirt
The artist Rirkrit Tiravanija will be presenting a history of the political t-shirt during the event, but there is still time to donate one of your limited edition numbers! If you have one at the back of your wardrobe, head to the Galerie Chantal Crousel (10 rue Charlot 75003) before October 1st.

Adam, thank you for posting this reminder. I will not be there but may create my own Nuit Blanche on Saturday. For the future, I will need to plan a trip to Paris en octobre to coincide with this event!
