Illuminate the Night Open Call

Website Nuit Blanche

deadline: August 17, 2020

Each year, an Open Call is held for artists to propose pieces that will enhance the audience experience of Nuit Blanche Winnipeg. Projects are selected by a jury of artists and art professionals and are featured in Winnipeg’s downtown core.

This is a call inviting artists working in all artistic mediums to submit projects- performance artists, installation artists, textile artists, graphic designers, media artists, architects and general creative thinkers – with a performance, exhibition or installation that will enthral, excite and possibly introduce Winnipeggers to something they have never seen or experienced before.

Illuminate the Night invites submissions from any Manitoban artist or group of artists. Projects that present a unique and engaging interpretation of the theme of “Illuminate the Night” are encouraged. Projects that utilize audience interaction, light and/or illumination are desired. An artist fee of $500 or $1,500 will be provided to each selected project in 2020 (subject to funding).

Please read the 2020 Submission Guidelines for requirements regarding COVID-19 protocols.

Submissions will be accepted until Monday, August 17, 2020.
