First Thursdays changes festival setup to feature interactive stations around campus


The Arts & Humanities Council will put on its annual First Thursdays festival 3 p.m. to 6 p.m. Sept. 3 and Oct. 1. At the event, students can appreciate art from their peers and meet creative organizations on campus, according to the IU Arts & Humanities website.

The event has previously taken place on the Fine Arts Plaza around Showalter Fountain, but new accommodations will be made due to the COVID-19 pandemic. A series of interactive stations will stretch from the Musical Arts Center to the Arboretum. These stations will lead visitors through individual and small group activities.

Previously, First Thursdays included opera singers, stage fighting, clay throwing and more. 

Participants are asked to register ahead of time online for the free event. All students will be asked to adhere to university and Bloomington health guidelines, including wearing masks and social distancing.

More information on registration and activities can be found on the IU Arts & Humanities social media, @iuahcouncil on Facebook, Instagram and Twitter.
