First Thursday: Long Winter Takeover
Jan 2

For one night only, two events merge! The Long Winter crew will be turning the First Thursdays experience upside down, transforming Walker Court into Bazaar Bazaar, an artist bazaar with its very own currency, where you can participate in creative exchanges with more than 20 artists presenting artworks and multiples. Other highlights include conversations with artists such as Shari Boyle and Petra Collins, pop-up performances and Moroccan food!

For more information, check out the Art Gallery of Ontario website.
