Plug In ICA is pleased to present a jubilee celebration as a part of our 50th year anniversary programming.  Join us for the costumed fete of the season, filled with old friends and new accomplices. 

Join us, all you enchanting creatures of the night, to salute over half a century of programming at Plug In ICA.  With a storied history in Winnipeg’s artistic landscape, we invite you to celebrate the past, present and future of Plug In ICA’s commitment to fostering vibrant artistic communities.

Under the Stars: Creatures of the Night costumed dance jubilee was hosted on Saturday, October 28, 2023 to celebrate 50 years and support Plug In ICA. Party goers danced the night away at this enchanted costumed event, with libations and snacks provided by, Little Brown Jug, The Pourium and Frito Lay.

This was a fundraising event! The proceeds raised from this event help to keep us FREE and accessible to all. As an Institute of Contemporary Art, our mandate is to provide dynamic programming free to all with a commitment to education. All contributions went directly towards programming, ensuring Plug In ICA continues to provide world-class exhibitions, events, lectures, online projects and education programs.


Costumes inappropriately representing other people’s struggles, such as poverty, violence, racism, or disability were not welcome. Plug In ICA reserved the right to deny entry or ask attendees to leave who were wearing culturally inappropriate and insensitive costumes. If you are unsure what this meant please view the links below.
