Nuit Blanche logo

The success of Nuit Blanche in Paris (creation in 2002) led several European capitals to organize their own Nuit Blanche. Brussels also elaborated a charter for Nuit Blanche with the other capitals. The charter defines the common vision of the cities on the event.

Organized by the Culture Service of the City of Brussels and Brufête, Nuit Blanche is thus: a cultural event open to all and free, at once artistic and popular, that incites to (re)discover or (re)conquer the urban environment with a new point of view.

Call for projects Nuit Blanche

Nuit Blanche privileges the urban creation in all its forms, brings various facets of the City alive and gives a strange new view on the public place.

One of the specificities of 'Nuit Blanche Brussels', is its participative aspect, which is based on a call for projects.

So, the previous edition saw the emergence of tens (even of hundreds) of projects emanating from recognized or novice artists, from public and private cultural institutions, but also from associations.

The mediators of the Culture Service of the City of Brussels work with the district associations to strenghten the cultural powers and ideas from the numerous local partners.

Events during Nuit Blanche

During Nuit Blanche, people are also invited to become 'an artist' for one night, by means of various participative workshops. Besides the artistic activities, Nuit Blanche is the opportunity to advance another event: 'Brussels By Night' (through evenings and diverse concerts). Nuit Blanche also proposes a space of reflection with debates that are open to all (Night university).

This event is free of charge.
