Fittingly, our final First Thursday is a nod to the future. The next generation of curators from OCAD U brings us their best with We Are Each Other’s Muses. The night’s program honours the muse in all of us, and centres the perspectives and experiences of BIPOC (Black, Indigenous, and Person of Colour), queer and femme-forward artists.

Our headliner is First Thursday alumnus TiKa who returns with two special guests, James Baley and TIYAL. Local artists will take over Baillie Court with an Art $ale!!! featuring artworks and wares you can take away. The night also features an advice column-style Q&A with Dayna Danger, a meme-making workshop by Fallon Simard, a performance by Kiera Boult, and the work of The Original Smiths whose retro, vintage and up-cycled clothing showcases creativity through style.

But don’t worry; the AGO isn’t getting out of the party game! An exciting new after-hours event is currently in the works, but we’re not quite ready to tell you what it is. It will be announced soon, so stay tuned for more details!
