Antigonight: Art After Dark Festival Call for Submissions

Antigonight: Art After Dark Festival is a free arts festival that aims to be inclusive and accessible to all persons. This year, the festival runs from September 16th -17th in Antigonish, L’nuewa’ki (Mi’kma’ki)/Nova Scotia.

Since its inception in 2010, Antigonight: Art After Dark has been Antigonish Culture Alive’s most recognizable and popular outdoor, public art event. The festival provides an opportunity for artists to display their work and become known within the community and give the community the chance to interact with contemporary art spanning multiple mediums, such as dance, theatre, music, sound art, and installation art.

We are inviting artists from anywhere in the world who have roots in Nova Scotia and Atlantic Canada to create experimental new works for the festival, including but not limited to: video, performance, dance, sound, sculpture, and installation, which can be presented in-person in the town of Antigonish. The heart of Antigonight is that all projects are interactive and/or participatory in nature, the selection committee will prioritize projects that have a participatory component, as stated in our mission statement.

Deadline to apply: June 27

Accessibility

Participating Antigonight artists will receive CARFAC-mandated artist fees in payment for their work. We strongly encourage members of LGBTQIA2+ communities, BIPOC and non-White communities, newcomers, and persons with disabilities to apply.
