EV 2017: Nuit Noire: Illuminate Our VoicesWinnipeg , Manitoba
Literature and Spoken Word , Multi/Interdisciplinary — Behind-the-scenes, Talks and Discussion
This year Black Space Winnipeg features the second instalment of our Afrocentric artist showcase, Nuit Noire. Nuit Noire was founded on the need to diversify a major festival for Winnipeg's art community. Now entering its second year, Nuit Noire is highlighting community voices through visual and performance art. Last year the partnership between Black Space Winnipeg and Artist's Exchange (studio of Gibril Bangura) showcased amazing talent from Winnipeg's newcomer, African community and local artists of colour (Mahlet Cuff, Xavier Mitshipayi, Uri Portillo and Dubem Ukaigwe). This year we are pleased to partner with Ace Art, with support from Culture Days and Nuit Blanche Winnipeg. Taking up space and making adequate space for artists across all disciplines from Winnipeg's Black community
