Our 15th, Nocturne Festival is now behind us, and what a beautiful legacy it leaves! 🌙

Thank you, Kjipuktuk, for meeting us at the art show this past week. We have loved sharing in the art and wonder of our city, using art as a catalyst for connection. ✨

Big thanks to our curators Stephanie Yee and Lux Habrich for sharing their vision, and to the artists–our reason for the season–for the work they shared with us. Thank you to the board of directors who starts planning for the festival all year round, festival volunteers for giving so generously with your passion, time and energy; to our staff who worked behind the scenes, and to our community partners for creating spaces for art and art-making in our every day, and to YOU for showing up and celebrating with us.

Deepest gratitude to our partners and funders who made it all possible:
