Call for Artists - Nuit Blanche Regina
Nuit Blanche Regina, Regina
May 15, 2018
On September 29th, 2018 Regina’s first Nuit Blanche festival will take place Downtown at City Square Plaza, Victoria Park, and FW Hill Mall. Nuit Blanche is a free, night time event that promotes the exploration of the city and creation of dialogue through art.
Nuit Blanche Regina will showcase a diversity of Saskatchewan artists and performers making projection based and electronic works, as well as artists making more traditional works that have an aspect of light, including theatre, dance, music, spoken word, and sculpture. The artworks will bring attention to downtown Regina by turning it into a vibrant and glowing space at night.
By taking place outdoors, Nuit Blanche Regina encourages artists to consider nature and urban spaces when developing their work. The artworks will be installed in Victoria Park, its surrounding streets and alleyways, as well as in storefronts and on sides of buildings in downtown Regina.
Emerging and experienced visual and performing artists are encouraged to participate in this open call for artists. Community organizations and school groups wanting to create group art projects with an aspect of light are also welcome to apply.
