First Thursdays Johannesburg

ABOUT

First Thursdays Johannesburg is a free cultural experience where art galleries and other cultural attractions in Braamfontein, Maboneng and Rosebank stay open late on the first Thursday of every month. More than just a transplant of the successful Cape Town edition of First Thursdays, we're excited to see this edition take on its own form - inspired by the complex and culturally rich city that is Johannesburg.

The night is as much about experiencing art and culture as it is about exploring the city on foot. We suggest browsing the highlights right here and choosing a few exhibitions and attractions that you'd like to see, but be open to letting the night take its own course. Print maps are available at most listed venues. 

NEXT EVENT

4 August 2016. 5pm to 9pm (and later).
