Opportunity: Call for proposals – Nuit Blanche

As a cultural, artistic event, Nuit Blanche invites everyone to reclaim the city for just one night.

CALL FOR PROPOSALS NUIT BLANCHE – 17th edition – 5 October 2019

Supported by the City of Brussels, NUIT BLANCHE highlights every first Saturday in October dozens of sites across the capital as it presents a variety of contemporary artistic creations at night. Cultural venues, shop windows, school playgrounds, car parks, churches, stations, fountains, streets and squares are all potential locations.

In offering a series of artistic works closely related to the sites in which they are presented, NUIT BLANCHE sheds new light on familiar places as well as extending an invitation to discover locations that the public usually have little or no chance to see.

Each year, thousands of night owls flock to Brussels to live intriguing and one-of-a-kind experiences.

A distinctive feature of NUIT BLANCHE is that it takes place in a different district each year. The 2019 edition will take place in and around Thurn & Taxis on Saturday 5 October, from 7.00pm until 3.00am.

Back to Nature

The theme this time will be ‘Back to Nature’. The 2019 NUIT BLANCHE intends to examine the impact of the Anthropocene period- a term that describes the current period, which started when human activities began to have a global impact on climate – on Earth’s ecosystem, the need to take account of nature and the role of artists in creating an awareness of climate-related issues.

This call for projects is open to emerging artists with a professional experience of up to 5 years. Artists are allowed to submit several projects. These can be new creations as well as existing projects. Files must be sent by Wednesday 27 March 2019 at the latest.

Creative Carbon Scotland is a partnership of arts organisations working to put culture at the heart of a sustainable Scotland. We believe cultural and creative organisations have a significant influencing power to help shape a sustainable Scotland for the 21st century.

In 2011 we worked with partners Festivals Edinburgh, the Federation of Scottish Threatre and Scottish Contemporary Art Network to support over thirty arts organisations to operate more sustainably.

We are now building on these achievements and working with over 70 cultural organisations across Scotland in various key areas including carbon management, behavioural change and advocacy for sustainable practice in the arts.

Our work with cultural organisations is the first step towards a wider change. Cultural organisations can influence public behaviour and attitudes about climate change through:

Changing their own behaviour;
Communicating with their audiences;
Engaging the public’s emotions, values and ideas.
