CB Nuit is a magical and inspiring evening of art on the West Coast of Newfoundland / Ktaqmkuk and we're excited to be back for a fourth year!
Corner Brook's first after dark arts festival was called Nuit150+ and it happened in 2017 as part of Canada's 150 birthday celebrations. The event was a HUGE success, so the organizers brought it back for another year in 2018 and again in 2019.
Our goal is to engage the Corner Brook community creatively through participation in site specific art projects which foster self expression.
CB Nuit brings art to the unceded ancestral lands of the Mi’kmaq and Beothuk people. As a young Canadian province, having joined confederation in 1949 when peace and friendship treaties were already in place, the Mi'kmaq and Beothuk people do not live on treaty land though the recognition of their rights as Indians under the Indian Act happened at that time and they are a part of what is considered Mi’kma’ki Territory. While the Mi'kmaq and Beothuk people existed here for thousands of years, their recognition as status Indians is a very new and exciting development.
CB Nuit creates community through art. It supports the vision and presentation in Corner Brook, NL, of unique and inspiring multi-disciplinary art projects created by professional artists, students, and community groups.
