First Thursdays turns three.

That night event which is fast becoming an institution on K’ Road, First Thursdays, turns three next month and you’re invited to help celebrate the occasion. Having begun as a single venue arts event in St Kevin’s Arcade in December 2009, the multi-media music, arts and performance evening now delivers a programme of 30 events spread across a total of 22 venues throughout the length of K’ Road.

Sustainability is the theme this year which means events where art meets recycling will feature. An example, says co-ordinator Cleo Barnett, is a children’s Christmas workshop scheduled to take place in Cross St Arcade at 214 K’ Road. The workshop will guide children through the process of creating their own personalised cards and decorations using a range of recycled materials. Other workshops planned include a screen printing lesson run by community group Tangleball in Edinburgh St and a talk on urban beekeeping in the basement of St Kevin’s Arcade.

Art in all its forms will be celebrated with the programme line-up including a beeswax sculpture by Auckland artist Tiffany Singh, live art outside Cosmic Corner and a ‘meet the makers’ opportunity in the BizDoJo Co-Space, where designers and artisans will be available to discuss their work.

Foxes craft market will be returning to St Kevin’s Arcade, participating galleries will be open late and there’ll be a short film screening at The Film Archive. Portrait sketches while you wait, funky bands in Ironbank, breakdancing competitions and street installations all promise to make First Thursdays third birthday party a night to remember. And you can keep up to date with new additions to FT’s programme by checking them out on Facebook.
