For the past few months, MAAA students have been working with the IU Arts + Humanities Council, a group “dedicated to supporting, organizing, and promoting our campus’s many outstanding programs in the arts and humanities”. A major initiative they have helped launch is First Thursdays, a monthly festival featuring different campus arts/cultural organizations, hands-on arts and crafts, live performances from DJ sets to dance troupes to poetry slams, delish food, and general participatory arts zaniness right in the heart of campus at Showalter Fountain.
The *first* First Thursday is THIS WEEK: September 1st, with activities running different times from 5pm to 9pm.
