2022 Photos

We still have a warm feeling from Nuit Blanche Winnipeg ’22! We want to thank all of our artists, volunteers, funders, partners and most of all, the thousands of art enthusiasts that came out to reboot our festival. Thank you!

About the Photos

This is just the beginning of our 2022 photos! NBW would not be possible without the independent curators and community partners that contribute to our festival each year. We invite you to check our 2022 independent curators page and share your photos with us! We would love to share your impression of our festival here as well as on socials. (please make sure to include the photo credits for each shot on the file name). To submit photos please send them to:

For each of the artworks below we have included the artist’s original “mock up” or promotional photo before NBW 2022. If you click on the title of the artworks, it will take you to our Culture Days Website where you can read the project description, bios and reach out to the artists if you like. All of the photos below this were taken @NBW September 24th.

Fire Cycle – Presented by the Winnipeg Arts Council Public Art Program

Old Market Square

Dancing trees call to you as Old Market Square becomes a glowing forest for Nuit Blanche. 

Fire Cycle by local artist Jonathan S Green invites you into the woods, where sparks shoot up and join in the dance.

The forest is on fire! Flames twist amongst the trees until the greenery falls and only fire remains. As the blaze slows the trees come back to life, moving in the new growth and the cycle begins again…

We’re excited to be bringing a little bit of WAG-Qaumajuq to the Exchange District for Nuit Blanche 2022!

At the Forks, celebrate light, language, and sound with Ikuma – an audio-visual program by multimedia artist Geronimo Inutiq – presented in collaboration with WAG-Qaumajuq. Ikuma from Inuktitut – translates to flame, fire, or spark. This installation will be activated between 9pm and 12am at the foot of the Esplanade Riel bridge at the Forks (behind CMHR).
