First Thursdays is back and teaming up with some great local collectives to be bigger and better than ever!
This fantastic event is relaunching as a quarterly event and the first one will be on Thursday 2 December 2010. K Road will come alive on a Thursday night with a craft market hosted by Foxes, poetry readings, live musical and dance performances, and DJs from George FM. And the highlight will be some of NZ’s most exciting emerging artists who will be exhibiting in a ten-day gallery show at Te Karanga Gallery.
St.Kevin’s arcade and neighbouring shops will also be opening late with special treats and discounts on the night. First Thursdays is all about fostering a tighter-knit arts community, connecting people and spreading new ideas.
The organisers are currently looking for talented artists, dancers, musicians, djs & poets! The application deadline is Friday 1 October 2010. See www.ﬁrstthursdays.co.nz for more details!
