Night\Shift, Kitchener's overnight arts festival, presented by A\J.

Nocturnal adventurers of K-W (and beyond): This past Saturday night you contributed to building a portal into another dimension of this community. Seeing so many bundled-up faces out on the streets for Night\Shift — exploring, absorbed, smiling wide and soaking up a side of this city that seems to bubble just below the surface — was itself a stunning and unforgettable performance piece. You helped to reveal so many of the fabulous qualities and possibilities that make downtown Kitchener tick, and you showed a whole bunch of talented artists, organizations and business owners a huge pile of appreciation for what they do. We can't thank you enough for supporting Night\Shift by diving in with both feet.
