This month, galleries and creative spaces across Sydney will throw open their doors for a massive celebration of contemporary art and artists for Art Month Sydney's milestone tenth anniversary. As part of this year's jam-packed lineup, Art Month Sydney is hosting a series of after-work tours of the city's most prolific art precincts.

On Thursday, March 21, it's time to check out galleries and art spaces around east Sydney for a sunset art tour. Whether you've wandered past but not ventured in, know the precinct's galleries well, or have never heard of them, tonight is a chance to enjoy what's on offer.

Galleries that'll be keeping their doors open for the evening include Stacks Projects, Artspace, Emerson, the Australian Design Centre and Chalk Horse. To take part, simply explore the Art Month Sydney map here, pop on some comfy shoes and start your tour at 6pm.

You can hit the pavement in any direction you like, but make sure you end things at Firstdraft. From 8pm, the venue — which is Australia's longest-running artist-run initiative — will be hosting an end-of-night party. There'll be a lineup of performance art and DJs curated by Performance Space's Tulleah Pearce. The lineup includes an installation by Jodie Whalen, video work by Su Yu Hsin and performances by artists JD Reforma, Eugene Choi, Alyx Dennison and Bonnie Stewart. Plus, DJs Marcus Whale and Sovereign Trax will provide the soundtrack to the party. And while you're there, you can also check out Firstdraft's latest exhibitions, featuring solo shows from Roberta Rich, Mojgan Habibi and Cindy Yuen-Zhe Chen.
