Artists & Curators

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.

Artists can access the application forms here:

BEACON PROJECTS (DEADLINE: JUNE 10, 2018)
COMMUNITY GROUPS + GALLERIES (APPLICATION COMING SOON, DEADLINE: JULY 15, 2018)
VENUES (ROLLING DEADLINE)
