Downtown Kitchener's free autumn art crawl reimagines private & public spaces after dark with experimental music & performances, multidisciplinary visuals & mind-opening interactions. The 2017 festival runs Nov 2nd-4th & features 50+ contributing artists.

THE WHAT

Celebrating its fifth year, Night\Shift 2017’s main multi-venue event happens on Saturday, November 4th from 7pm to 2am (same night the clocks roll back). Lead-up programming kicks off the festival on November 2nd & 3rd at Open Sesame & KWAG. Get artist & programming details: nightshiftwr.ca/2017

Festival-goers are invited to reimagine a cluster of nearly 20 public and private spaces occupied by a wide range of about 50 contributing artists, including experimental live music and theatre, projections, installations, sculptures and other interactive visuals and activities. We aim to weave together downtown Kitchener spaces and subcultures with new possibilities.

A few 2017 festival features we’re incredibly excited about:

Strange installations by Gary Kirkham, Susan Coolen, Torin Langen & Ellie Anglin

The immersive Fibre Funhouse with an interactive theatrical story woven into it, a collaboration between Michelle Purchase, Agnes Niewiadomski & Green Light Arts

Live music by Cadence Weapon, ANAMAI, respectfulchild, New Fries, You’ll Never Get to Heaven & more

THE WHERE

Night\Shift 2017 will be concentrated in indoor and outdoor spaces spread within about a two-square-block area between the Apollo Cinema and the Walper Hotel.

THE WHY

Help keep Night\Shift 2017 in the black and show your appreciation for experimental art & performance! Each donation level comes with rad perks, in addition to the warm glow of satisfaction that comes from supporting a super cool local festival.
