Illuminate the Night Open Call

Each year, an Open Call is held for artists to propose pieces that will enhance the audience experience of Nuit Blanche Winnipeg. Projects are selected by a jury of artists and art professionals and are featured in Winnipeg’s downtown core.

This is a call inviting artists working in all artistic mediums to submit projects- performance artists, installation artists, textile artists, graphic designers, media artists, architects and general creative thinkers – with a performance, exhibition or installation that will enthral, excite and possibly introduce Winnipeggers to something they have never seen or experienced before.

For 2022, Illuminate the Night invites submissions from any Manitoban artist or group of artists. Projects that present a unique and engaging interpretation of the theme of “Illuminate the Night” are encouraged. Projects that utilize audience interaction, light and / or illumination are desired. An artist honorarium of $2,000 will be provided to each selected project in 2022 (subject to funding).

2022 Submission Deadline: Wednesday, June 8 at 11:59 pm


Culture Days Manitoba recognizes the importance of equity and diversity in the presentation of Nuit Blanche Winnipeg. If you feel comfortable, we encourage you in your application to voluntarily self-declare if you identify as part of an underrepresented work equity group, including (but not limited to) women, persons with disabilities, Black, a Person of Colour, Indigenous, Métis or Inuit peoples, or in the LGBTQ2+ community.
