Artists & Curators


Nocturne would not be what it is without the passion, creativity, and genius of the artists of K'jipuktuk/Halifax. 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!



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.
