Feel like you need to restock all the culture credits you lost while you were cooped up at home? Thankfully, the MCA's much-loved after-dark program, MCA Late, is returning, so you can get your culture fix on Friday evenings once again. And the best part? It's free.

The MCA is staying open on Fridays till 9pm for evenings filled with incredible art, curated music, tasty drinks and more. You can stroll through the Museum's free exhibitions, enjoy a sunset drink at the MCA Cafe overlooking the sparkling harbour or nab a ticket to the Doug Aitken exhibition after hours. You can also catch the likes of Sydney hip hop artist and producer Bernie van Tiel, breakdancing crew ABA, Gagidal man and board member of the Metropolitan Local Aboriginal Lands Council Uncle Ray Davison, and a whole bunch more.

There'll be pop-up performances from poets, musicians and artists throughout the weekly event, so make sure you keep an eye out as you make your way through the Museum. Across the first three Fridays in November, you can catch sets from local DJs Bocconcini and Jun Wan in the FBi Radio-backed music series Sounds on the Terrace. Want to get creative? Unleash your artistic potential in the Sundown Sketch Club.
