Show us how you see our city and take part in Night of Culture 2016. Between 15 March and 17 April 2016 we run an open call for art projects for Night of Culture.
For the past ten years, Night of Culture has been giving an opportunity for artists to express themselves, guaranteeing that the projects selected for this unique celebration of culture reach thousands of people. This is what will happen this year too. We will hold a series of events that enter into a dialogue with the urban space under the banner “This is how I see it”. Of course, the final result depends solely on your creativity and creative potential. Everyone can submit their ideas. Applicants were invited to submit a project proposal relating to one of the venues listed below.
- The Kraków Gate
- the balconies and outdoor staircase at ul. Rybna
- the square at ul. Furmańska
- blank walls at Plac Rybny
- vacant lot at Ul. Olejna
- the square in front of the Lublin Cathedral (opposite Brain Damage Gallery)
We were, as always, looking for creative artists working in broadly defined visual arts who are inspired by space and by our city. Diplomas in art are not needed to take part in the festival. What we want are open minds, surprising ideas and thinking outside the box. The vernissage of the works will take place on Night of Culture.
Aside from an opportunity to present their ideas, the artists chosen to co-create the exhibitions will also participate in workshops and consultations with the jury of the project “This How I see it”. The members of the jury are:
