Artists & Curators

Curators

Each year Nocturne hires a Curator who develops the theme and organizes 5-10 anchor projects to be installed within the downtown cores of Halifax and Dartmouth. These anchor projects are funded directly by the Halifax Regional Municipality. The curator will name a local, arts-based non-profit as a partner. 

APPLY NOW


Artists

Nocturne would not be what it is without the passion, creativity, and genius of Halifax’s artists. The majority of individual artists participate in Nocturne: Art at Night by applying to have a work or concept selected as a Beacon Project. The projects are selected through a juried process and the artists are funded by Nocturne following CARFAC guidelines. The call for applications is now out! 

Every year Nocturne and our curator bring art and artists to create fixed points for the evening. These projects echo the year's theme and create gathering spots to which to explore the festival from.
