Calling All Artist! Now Accepting Proposals for Nuit Blanche North 2019!

NbN2014-CrowdwithlogoThe Huntsville Festival of the Arts are pleased to invite artist proposals for the 8th annual Nuit Blanche North on July 27th, 2019.

For one night only, the streets will come alive with an exciting program of free contemporary artistic activities, events and exhibits taking place in unconventional places in and around Huntsville’s downtown core. Close to 7,000 visitors flooded the streets in 2018, and we expect that number to grow again this year.

This year’s theme is “All Together Now”. We are seeking unique and engaging installations, interactive art, film, sculpture, street theatre, music, or anything else that explore ideas revolving around the collective, what connects/divides, as well as the opportunities & challenges collectivity provokes. We seek projects that encourage audiences to explore, discover, debate, and participate in contemporary art and the public spaces that surround them. This is your chance to think outside the box, and let your imagination run wild. Any venue in the downtown core is possible, and we encourage local businesses, cultural and religious institutions to join in by opening their doors and offering free access to contemporary art. Artists will be paid fees for their participation.

Submission Deadline: March 8, 2019
