ABOUT US >

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. CB Nuit is a magical and inspiring evening of art and we're excited to be back for a fourth year!

 

Our goal is to  engage the Corner Brook community creatively through participation in site specific art projects which foster self expression.

On the West Coast of Newfoundland, nestled on the shore of the Bay of Islands, you’ll find Corner Brook - a small community with a huge creative spirit. 

 

CB Nuit is Corner Brook’s after dark arts festival. This multidisciplinary festival aims to engage artists in the creation and installation of site-specific and participatory contemporary art works. 

 

In its first year (2017), nearly 3,000 people visited the festival, which won the 2017 Corner Brook Ace Award for “Event of the Year.” In 2018 and 2019, CB Nuit continued to present exceptional works and wow audiences as we officially became a yearly festival.

 

Our fourth event is scheduled for September 18 & 19, 2020. It promises to be an exciting night that includes initiatives to be an environmentally conscious and inclusive festival.

 

CB Nuit’s mandate encourages the cross pollination of art disciplines, though this isn’t compulsory. Selected artists will create art experiences across a range of media or combinations thereof: visual, performance, site-specific, video, sound, projection, theatre, film, dance, and music. 

 

  • Artists agree to create temporary projects to be presented during the festival’s main event.

  • Projects will be located in a space which will be accessible free of charge to the public.

  • Artists will be assigned a location either public or privately owned. In the case of private venues, artists and venue proprietors will be expected to follow specific guidelines with regards to use of space which will be found in the artist contract.

  • Projects must be offered either continuously or at intervals from 7pm until midnight on the second night of the event.

  • Artists are invited to create an optional workshop connected to the project delivered at the festival. An additional honorarium will be remunerated for workshops delivered the night before the festival or during the day leading up to the festival’s main event. 

  • Selected artists will be paid an honorarium for completed projects. 

  • CB Nuit does not pay for travel and accommodations, however we can facilitate billeting.

  • Proposals will be juried by a panel comprised of the organizing arts committee.
