The Huntsville Festival of the Arts and Edge of the Woods Theatre are pleased to invite artist proposals for the 3rd annual Nuit Blanche North: a bold interactive multi-arts street festival in downtown Huntsville Ontario on Saturday July 13, 2013.
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. This year’s theme is “(land)”. We are seeking unique and engaging installations, interactive art, film, sculpture, street theatre, music, or anything else that explores the theme of land (relating to both a place or the act of landing), and encourages 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: February 23, 2013
