2018 Nuit Blanche North Open Call for Proposals

web site

The Huntsville Festival of the Arts and Edge of the Woods Theatre invite artist proposals for the 7th annual Nuit Blanche North: a bold interactive multi-arts street festival in downtown Huntsville Ontario on July 28, 2018.

Submission Deadline: March 2, 2018

Nuit Blanche North will be held in Huntsville Ontario on July 28, 2018. From 8pm to 2am, the streets will come alive with an exciting program of free artistic works that take place in unconventional places in and around Huntsville’s downtown core. Participating artists will create works of art and performances that encourage audiences to explore, discover, debate, and participate in contemporary art and the public spaces that surround them. Any venue in the downtown core is possible, and we encourage local businesses, cultural and religious institutions to participate by opening their doors and offering free access to contemporary art and performances.
In 2017, Nuit Blanche North returned after a one year hiatus to present the work of 130 different artists, and welcoming over 6,000 visitors. This event is inspired by the Nuit Blanche event originally presented in Paris, France in 2002. The international success of Nuit Blanche continues to build each year and has expanded its reach beyond Paris to 25 different cities across the globe – each offering its own version of the all-night art extravaganza.
