BRIGHT NIGHT PROVIDENCE 2013 CALL TO ARTISTS
6/8/2012 PROVIDENCE, RI
Individual artists, cultural organizations, community groups and nonprofit organizations are encouraged to apply to be part of Bright Night Providence, Rhode Island’s largest New Year’s Eve Celebration.
Bright Night is an artist-run, arts oriented New Year’s Eve Celebration that features some of Rhode Island’s best musicians, actors, singers, dancers, storytellers, acrobats, magicians, visual artists, and clowns. Last year, fantastic performers starred on 17 stages. This year will be the 10 Year Anniversary of the festival!
Commissioned Bright Night artists will be paid for their work and have the chance to use downtown Providence as their canvas. Proposals from artists of all types – theater performers, storytellers, musicians, filmmakers, visual and large installations artists, performance artists, dancers, digital media artists and spoken-word performers – are sought.
Artists are encouraged to be adventurous, try new forms and further their own creative processes.
The deadline for submission is August 31, 2012. Applications will be accepted late, but earlier submissions are given preference. Preference is also given to local artists, although no one will be excluded due to geography alone.
The application is available online at
