Nocturne: Art at Night

Nocturne 2020: ECHOLOCATION
curated by Lindsay Dobbin
October 12-17: K’jipuktuk/Halifax and virtually everywhere.

Considering all of the ecological and social injustices at present, what is the role of art in transmitting our impact and collective responsibility as stewards of this land? Can art deepen kinship and communication with the natural world, encourage collaboration and relationships, and imagine a sustainable way forward? How can the land guide us as creators? Our listening? Our actions? How can we embody practices of care, reciprocity and respect for the land and each other through creation?

Description:
Nocturne: Art at Night is a fall festival that brings art and energy to the streets of K’jipuktuk/Halifax between 6 p.m. and midnight. The completely free annual event showcases and celebrates the visual arts scene in Mi’kma’ki/Nova Scotia. Nocturne, designed and planned largely by volunteers, is an opportunity for everyone to experience the art of K’jipuktuk/Halifax in a whole new light. Nocturne is a not-for-profit organization that works on building partnerships with the city and area businesses and government organizations to bring the city access to art and wonder with no barriers. Every year Nocturne works with a new curator to present a theme and Anchor Artists. The Halifax waterfront will be home to a number of showcases for this year’s event.
