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 2017, and we expect that number to grow again this year.
This year’s theme is “So What Now?”. 2017 was a year marked by celebrations related to Canada’s 150th anniversary of confederation, and protests related to many issues including the #metoo movement. These challenged and defined notions of our place and identity on this planet. But what happens now? We are seeking unique and engaging installations, interactive art, film, sculpture, street theatre, music, or anything else that explore what happens after events of personal and public significance, and how they ripple over time. We're looking for 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.
