First Thursdays 2020
See in the month with a free art performance.
March 02, 2020
You've probably heard of starting your day as you choose to go on, but how about starting your month in the same fashion? In the return of its popular series from the past few years, Fortitude Valley's Institute of Modern Art wants you to kick off each portion of the annual calendar in an engaging and artistic fashion — and it has curated the perfect events to help.
At First Thursdays, artists are invited to step into the IMA spotlight for a party-filled night — and you're invited to enjoy the fruits of their efforts. Participatory art experiences will take over the Brunswick Street venue, be it performance, dance, visual art, food or music, for a fun night of experimentation.
Because the lineup for First Thursdays changes each month, it's never the same shindig twice. In March, to get things started for 2020, the event will feature performances by Joella Warkill, Manisha Anjali, Shivanjani Lal, Sancintya Mohini Simpson and Isha Ram Das, who'll all delve into the tales of women forgotten by colonial histories.
