Nuit Blanche: Call for Submissions, Application Deadline May 25

Extended Deadline for Open Calls, Thursday, May 25 11:59 p.m. CST.

It's the 8th-year Culture Days Manitoba is organizing Nuit Blanche and we're so thrilled to celebrate local, contemporary art from dusk till dawn on Saturday, September 30, 2017.

We are seeking art submissions/proposals from artists, curators, art historians, architects, art groups and collectives and over-all creative thinkers to introduce Winnipeggers to something they have never seen or experienced before.

We have two categories that provide funding to emerging and established artists.

Emerging Voices invites contemporary art submissions from Manitoba post-secondary student artists. An honorarium of $500 is provided to each selected project. On the night of NBW, one Emerging Voices artist will receive the $2,000 first place cash prize, generously sponsored by Winnipeg artist Jeff Funnell.

Illuminate the Night invites submissions from Canadian artist or artist groups from across Canada. 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 honorarium of $2,000 is provided to each selected project.

The deadline for our Open Calls is extended for Thursday, May 25 11:59 p.m. CST.

The honorariums provided to all artists selected for both Open Calls are made possible by the Winnipeg Arts Council, Nuit Blanche Winnipeg's Producing Partner.
