This year's thirteenth edition of the Night comes with a few new surprises:

3 DAYS - 15, 16, SEPTEMBER 17

For the first time the festival will take place in 3 nights from 15 to 17 September 2017. On Sunday expect afternoon workshops, presentations and more.


This year, we make a slight change in the structure and focus of the traditional programs. The artistic projects will be divided into 5 subprograms and a section for the children: "Museums, Galleries and Studios”, “City and Culture”, “Public Spaces”, “Club and Music”, “Open Arts + HERE EVERYWHERE” and a section “Little Night”.


We are happy to share with you all the 10-th anniversary of Open Arts Foundation. The festival will celebrate the anniversary with a special program under the motto “HERE EVERYWHERE”. More details soon!


In this year's festival run the rubric “Lights of the Night” will give emphasis to the new participants and/or locations. Stay tuned.
