The modern culture forum White Night 2017 in Riga will be held on the night of September 9 and 10, offering 59 various contemporary art and cultural events in Riga!
For the twelfth time, White Night has become an unforgettable part of Riga’s cultural calendar! The White Night programme will include 34 culture and art projects, including concerts, installations and performances in an urban environment, exhibitions, multimedia projects, poetry readings and movie programmes. 25 initiative projects will add up to the programme organised by art galleries, cafes, art and culture studies and other active inhabitants of Riga and like-minded people.
This year, White Night is especially festive – it has been 15 years since the first White Night or Nuit Blanche in Paris where the idea of this forum was born. Therefore, this year, Riga offers an especially wide international programme!
All White Night events can be attended free of charge and are hosted in different parts of the city. The most active locations this year are in and near the Spīķeri Quarter, the Old Town, Miera street, the active centre of Riga as well as the left bank of the Daugava river.
One night only for art, music, theatre, circus, dance, philosophy, anthropology and cooking, combined together to produce a single message about the time and space in which we live. White Night brings new meaning to public space: places that have been abandoned or which are closed to the public, isolated areas of the city, places that are part of our city’s history, now re-discovered by artists in a new and decidedly innovative way.
You are cordially invited to admire Riga and join the locals in experiencing a sleepless night full of cultural surprises!
