Call for Submissions: Nuit Rose 2018
“NUIT ROSE is now accepting submissions from artists, performers, writers, curators, cultural organizations, and community businesses interested in presenting work and projects for the fifth edition of the festival, which will take place on SATURDAY, JUNE 16, 2018.
2018 THEME: UNBOUND
The theme for Nuit Rose 2018 is Unbound. Artists are invited to creatively interpret, explore, and respond to this theme in their proposed projects. Examples could include:
- Projects that explore ways in which art can challenge existing conventions, norms, classifications, confines, and limitations
- Projects that celebrate freedom from limiting forces, including physical borders or oppressive systems
- Projects that show us ways to overcome boundaries and barriers
- Projects with expansive vision, or that incorporate concepts of infinity or oneness
ELIGIBLE WORKS/ PROJECTS
Applicants may submit work in any medium; two dimensional works, sculpture, installation, screen-based works, new media, performance, multi-media and site-specific works. Works and projects intended for either indoor or outdoor presentation are welcome.
We strongly encourage artists and organizations to apply who reflect diversity and intersectionality in sexuality, gender, culture, race, ethnicity, creed, religion, age, ability, and other dimensions of diversity.
Nuit Rose will take place in various Toronto venues and neighbourhoods, including in the Church-Wellesley Village and West Queen West. The festival’s curators will allocate selected works in our key partner venues. Applicants who have their own venue or location to present their project are also strongly encouraged to apply, and may be included in the festival as a Partner Project.“
