Nuit Blanche

2022 Call for Submissions

Illuminate the Night Funded Projects

Budget: $2,000 (subject to funding)

Deadline: Wednesday, June 8

Illuminate the Night is an open call that invites contemporary art submissions from artists and artist collectives residing in Manitoba to be exhibited at the 13th annual Nuit Blanche Winnipeg taking place from dusk until late on Saturday, September 24, 2022.

Nuit Blanche Winnipeg is a free evening exploration and celebration of contemporary art that kicks off Culture Days Manitoba's three weeks of events. For 2022 we are returning to a one-night event for Nuit Blanche Winnipeg, with projects on display from 6pm – midnight. Installations for our funded Illuminate the Night program will be set up in outdoor spaces in and adjacent to Winnipeg's Exchange District. Produced by Culture Days Manitoba in partnership with the Winnipeg Arts Council, Nuit Blanche Winnipeg 2022's Illuminate the Night installations will encourage audiences to walk, roll, or bike by and engage with the pieces.

Artists are invited to submit new, pre-existing, or in-process projects which contemplate an exciting and engaging interpretation of the theme Illuminate the Night using public interaction, if possible, spectacle, and light/illumination.
