With your support, on 2 July 2016 we plan to launch the first edition of Art Night – a new annual contemporary arts festival for London that is free to attend and open to all.

From Admiralty Arch to the disused Jubilee line platform in Charing Cross Underground station, a range of buildings and public spaces will form the stage for a series of art installations and performances, for one night only.

Each year, we will invite a renowned cultural institution to explore a different part of London. For the first edition of Art Night, the Institute of Contemporary Arts (ICA), will present 10 works by leading international artists in unusual locations, exploring the area’s rich architectural and cultural history.

Art Night 2016 will focus around London’s Strand, which has been the headquarters of the Knights Templar, a gathering point for British aristocrats, a street of palaces and theatres, and a place of vice and deprivation. We want to offer artists spaces with which to experiment and explore new ideas. As the sun goes down, Londoners and visitors alike will be able to experience the city in a new way.

We need your support to finalise the trail. Your backing will help us make this journey a reality, revealing the secrets of the Strand and presenting cutting-edge contemporary creations for the public to enjoy. Art Night is a non-profit and free-to-attend initiative operated by a registered charity, ArtCity Nights. We need one final push to reach our target budgets in order to cover all production costs.

Please support Art Night and receive a wonderful reward in return.
