Catch free talks, musical performances and exhibitions alongside a pop-up cocktail bar at the Powerhouse Museum after dark.
Finishing work on a Thursday afternoon, you can feel the weekend coming. You might want to hit the town but you're just looking for the right excuse. Powerhouse Museum is offering up that excuse with a run of free late-night events happening every Thursday night, from January 21–March 25.
The festivities run until 9pm each week, with talks on music, art and design all taking place throughout the program, alongside musical performances and art exhibitions.
Highlights from the ten-week program include a multi-sensory night of music, light and art courtesy of FBi Radio, in collaboration with creative collectives Soft Centre and Vibe Positive; a takeover from fashion label Romance Was Born, which will see the museum drenched in Australiana kitsch; and a night of electro-jazz thanks to Astral People.
An outdoor summer bar is also popping up in the museum's Harris Street terrace, featuring a special Campari cocktail menu for Thursday night refreshments.
All exhibitions are free but registration is required. Jump on the Powerhouse Museum's website to browse the full program and register your interest to get your mid-week cultural fix.
