Metaphorically speaking (in the Romantic languages), white nights mean ‘sleepless’ nights, and this year as well in early September, you are cordially invited to join the crowd in experiencing a sleepless night chock full of surprises.The long list of entertainment includes contemporary art, music and dance circus acts, excursions into the sciences, literature and philosophy. They all converge on White Night — the modern arts forum.

A major nighttime event in Riga this year is the opening of the Sculpture-Quadriennale-Riga. This modern art festival is held in the Latvian capital since 1972. The theme this time out is Conservatism vs. Liberalism, and its venues will be the Artists’ Union Gallery, Wagner Hall, and and a number of outdoor locations.
