Expressions of interest from artists and performers wanting to participate in White Night Melbourne are now open. The White Night Ballarat website will be launched and open for Expressions of Interest on 9 August 2016.

White Night Melbourne is one of Australia's most celebrated cultural events that continues to draw record crowds into Melbourne's CBD. Due to the success of the past 4 events, next year will mark the first regional White Night in Ballarat.

Newly appointed White Night 2017 Artistic Director and Executive Producer, David Atkins, said "Over the last 4 years White Night has provided a unique platform for the presentation and performance of hundreds artists during its unique 12 hours of programming."

"Over half a million people attend White Night and this exposure and environment is an unprecedented opportunity for artists and performers locally, regionally, nationally and internationally to present their work. We have launched the Expression of Interest submissions for artists and performers for White Night Melbourne 2017 and we are looking forward to an overwhelming response."

Expressions of Interest are open now and close at midnight on 23 August 2016.
