Culture Night is an event that brings together the whole of Greenland.
The next Culture Night will be on 21 January 2023.
The project was started in 2000 at the National Library of Greenland, which is still
organisers of the cultural night. It also offers programmes and maps, and is an information centre. The National Library is also responsible for advertising via the Nuuk weekly newspaper and KNR TV.
Culture Night in Greenland is held in winter, unlike elsewhere, and is a gathering point for families and citizens. It is in collaboration with many different cultural forms such as musicians, actors, entertainers and writers. These can be experienced by everyone, from infants to the elderly, and the city buses can be used for free during the cultural night.
The leisure director is the lead person for the participating associations, collecting
information on the various activities.
In the past, the community centre was the meeting point, but Katuaq has taken over in recent years, so you have to contact Katuaq to register.
In 2012, Kommuneqarfik Sermersooq’s initiative prize was awarded by Mayor Asii Chemnitz Narup to Elise Jeremiassen for her work on the Culture Night, which she has been and still is the driving force behind.
In 2015, the Kulturnatten celebrated its 15th anniversary, and to mark the occasion, Nunatta Atuagaateqarfia National Library held an exhibition and a café-mic, for which the Tips and Lottery Fund provided a grant of DKK 150,000.
