The theme for Nocturne this year is Echolocation. Echolocation is a biological sonar used by various animals, and even some humans, for spatial orientation. Through emitting sound and listening to how they echo in return, one is able to identify and locate themselves in relation to the environment in real-time. This active phenomenon speaks to relationality and impact, and the cyclical capacity to transmit, listen, and receive.

NOCTURNE 2020 #NOCHFX20
Halifax’s 13th annual art at night is excited to announce our 2020 dates: October 13-17. As always, the Saturday after the long weekend in October will be our main event with lead up events throughout the week!
Nocturne: 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.
The completely free annual event showcases and celebrates the visual arts scene in K’jipuktuk/Halifax. Nocturne is a not-for-profit organization that brings the city access to art and wonder with no barriers.
Geographically, Nocturne takes place within the 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 the 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.
