CALL FOR ARTISTS- BRIGHT NIGHT PROVIDENCE 2012
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.
|The Banished Fools, one of Bright Night’s roving bands
of characters, lights up the New Year.
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, over 40 groups performed, featuring over 150 performers on 15 stages. This year will be the ninth year 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 September 1, 2011. 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
