Open call: Maastricht is on the lookout for a Night Mayor

The question that is on everyone’s lips: who will be named Night Mayor of Maastricht during the 5th edition of Museumnacht Maastricht?

Do you think you are the perfect candidate or do you know someone who can represent Maastricht’s Nightlife at broad daylight like no other? Get in touch before 1 March 2020 and/or vote for your favourite candidate.

Do you want the be the voice and face of Maastricht’s Nightlife and share your opinion and constructive advice with cultural institutions, the hospitality industry and the municipality?

Five candidates will be selected after the open call. Together with the public (online voting) as well as an official jury (plea for the night), the Night Mayor will ultimately be chosen during the 5th edition of Museumnacht Maastricht at the Jan van Eyck Academy on Friday 17 April 2020.

This initiative is a first step towards strengthening the dialogue between night owls and day makers in Maastricht, something that Museumnacht Maastricht – as an Art Night Out – has always been committed to as well, since its establishment in 2016. The future Night Mayor must therefore embrace collaboration and have a strong connection with multiple scenes in the city; from student life and cultural hotspots to the many distinctive cafes in Maastricht. Someone who feels alive at night and is passionate about art – in the broadest sense of the word and in every possible shape – and who can and wants to enrich Maastricht’s Nightlife.

Besides the honourable title of Night Mayor of Maastricht 2020, he/she will also receive a check of €500, a bespoke piece of jewellery, created by Maastricht designer Minou Lejeune, the opportunity to give your first speech as Night Mayor during the official Museumnacht Maastricht afterparty in the Muziekgieterij, and a quarterly editorial voice to put the spotlight on Maastricht’s Nightlife in the WeekINWeekUIT.

The jury consists of representatives of among others the Maastricht hospitality industry, the cultural nightlife and the international student community.
