First Thursdays Christchurch invites you to join us for LIFE AQUATIC this December.
Dive into Sydenham and soak up the sights and sounds. Join us for a night of free arts and entertainment. Combining art, exhibitions, live music, installations, hands-on arts activities, night markets and more, there's something for everyone!
Art galleries and shops at The Colombo and throughout Sydenham will be open late, as well as numerous pop up exhibitions featuring work by local and national artists. With LIFE AQUATIC as our theme, we'll be celebrating everything H2O and offering an opportunity to immerse yourself in the arts.
Local businesses will host fresh new work by Aiko Robinson, Kim Lowe, Clint Park and Hannah Heslop. Our famous night market at The Colombo will have an array of goodies for purchase and perusal, accompanied by live music and fabulous food. Get into the flow with free life drawing sessions, break dancing performances by Common Ground, a live stencil mural created by Porta and friends and much more!
Whether you’re an arts advocate or have never set foot in a gallery, First Thursdays is an evening to experience a variety of art, to celebrate Christchurch’s talent and explore Sydenham’s hidden gems.
This event is proudly supported and made possible by The Colombo, Pablo at 383 Colombo St, Ara Institute of Canterbury, Christchurch City Council, BNS Design & Print and Arts Voice Christchurch
