What is Nocturne?
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.
Geographically, Nocturne takes place within Mi’kma’ki, the ancestral and unceded territory of the Mi’kmaq People. This territory is covered by the “Treaties of Peace and Friendship” which Mi’kmaq and Wolastoqiyik (Maliseet) people first signed with the British Crown in 1725. The treaties did not deal with surrender of lands and resources but in fact recognized Mi’kmaq and Wolastoqiyik (Maliseet) title and established the rules for what was to be an ongoing relationship between nations.
Art at Night is the premier art experience in a thriving community.
Art at Night celebrates contemporary professional art in K’jipuktuk/Halifax. Through our festival and additional programming, we use art as a catalyst for connection.
