NUIT ROSE is now accepting submissions from artists, performers, writers, curators, cultural organizations, and community businesses interested in presenting work and projects for the fifth edition of the festival, which will take place on SATURDAY, JUNE 16, 2018.

The DEADLINE for submissions is MONDAY, FEBRUARY 19, 2018.

ABOUT NUIT ROSE

Nuit Rose is a free annual festival of queer art and performance, showcasing provocative, contemporary work by local and international artists. Over the past four years, Nuit Rose has showcased over 250 projects, and has become an important platform for queer voices across artistic disciplines. Nuit Rose is a catalyst for community engagement, giving audiences opportunities to experience unique, transformational encounters with queer art across the city of Toronto.

Nuit Rose will mark its fifth anniversary in 2018, returning in epic fashion on Saturday, June 16, 2018.


2018 THEME: UNBOUND

The theme for Nuit Rose 2018 is Unbound. Artists are invited to creatively interpret, explore, and respond to this theme in their proposed projects. Examples could include:

  • Projects that explore ways in which art can challenge existing conventions, norms, classifications, confines, and limitations
  • Projects that celebrate freedom from limiting forces, including physical borders or oppressive systems
  • Projects that show us ways to overcome boundaries and barriers
  • Projects with expansive vision, or that incorporate concepts of infinity or oneness

ELIGIBLE WORKS/ PROJECTS

Applicants may submit work in any medium; two dimensional works, sculpture, installation, screen-based works, new media, performance, multi-media and site-specific works. Works and projects intended for either indoor or outdoor presentation are welcome.

We strongly encourage artists and organizations to apply who reflect diversity and intersectionality in sexuality, gender, culture, race, ethnicity, creed, religion, age, ability, and other dimensions of diversity.


FESTIVAL LOCATIONS

Nuit Rose will take place in various Toronto venues and neighbourhoods, including in the Church-Wellesley Village and West Queen West. The festival’s curators will allocate selected works in our key partner venues. Applicants who have their own venue or location to present their project are also strongly encouraged to apply, and may be included in the festival as a Partner Project.


SELECTION PROCESS

A jury of artists and curators will evaluate the proposals and make recommendations for selection of works to be included in the festival. The jury will evaluate proposals using the following criteria:

  • Artistic merit
  • Project viability and feasibility
  • Capacity for the work to engage communities
  • Capacity for the work to be interactive or relational
  • Representation of diversity and intersectionality (sexuality, gender, culture, race, ethnicity, creed, religion, age, ability, and other dimensions of diversity)
  • Representation of queer, 2-spirited or trans culture, history, theory or perspective
  • Representation of local and/or global social and cultural issues (including critical issues in art-making)
  • Alignment with the Nuit Rose 2018 theme: Unbound

Projects may be selected as Featured Projects, Independent Projects, or Partner Projects. Featured Projects will receive remuneration based on current Canadian Artists’ Representation (CARFAC) rates, in addition to receiving exhibition or performance space in key venues. Those invited to participate as Independent Projects will be eligible for exhibition space and promotional support only. Partner Projects are those organized and presented independently (e.g. a curated exhibition by a gallery) and will receive promotional support as part of the festival. Nuit Rose strives to award feature project status to as many projects as possible, dependent on available funding resources. The jury may also use its discretion to award commissions to specific projects. The Nuit Rose Festival reserves the right to limit the total number of works accepted (per proposal).

Applicants will be notified of selection results by April 30, 2018.
