Opportunity: Call for proposals – Nuit Blanche
As a cultural, artistic event, Nuit Blanche invites everyone to reclaim the city for just one night.
CALL FOR PROPOSALS NUIT BLANCHE – 17th edition – 5 October 2019
Supported by the City of Brussels, NUIT BLANCHE highlights every first Saturday in October dozens of sites across the capital as it presents a variety of contemporary artistic creations at night. Cultural venues, shop windows, school playgrounds, car parks, churches, stations, fountains, streets and squares are all potential locations.
In offering a series of artistic works closely related to the sites in which they are presented, NUIT BLANCHE sheds new light on familiar places as well as extending an invitation to discover locations that the public usually have little or no chance to see.
Each year, thousands of night owls flock to Brussels to live intriguing and one-of-a-kind experiences.
A distinctive feature of NUIT BLANCHE is that it takes place in a different district each year. The 2019 edition will take place in and around Thurn & Taxis on Saturday 5 October, from 7.00pm until 3.00am.
Back to Nature
The theme this time will be ‘Back to Nature’. The 2019 NUIT BLANCHE intends to examine the impact of the Anthropocene period- a term that describes the current period, which started when human activities began to have a global impact on climate – on Earth’s ecosystem, the need to take account of nature and the role of artists in creating an awareness of climate-related issues.
This call for projects is open to emerging artists with a professional experience of up to 5 years. Artists are allowed to submit several projects. These can be new creations as well as existing projects. Files must be sent by Wednesday 27 March 2019 at the latest.
