FIRST FRIDAY

Art | Fashion | Music | Photography | Design | Creatives – Time to Thrive

Striving to achieve the same support that First Fridays originally brought to the community, Creative Council and LxC kicked off our initiative to showcase the arts and cultural industries monthly. The First Friday event was hosted at Golden Margarita, right in the heart of the Downtown art scene. 

The February 5th event was extremely successful. Due to current Covid situations, we didn’t know how many people would actually want to get involved and attend, but the response we received was incredible. The team took proper precautions to scale down our typical production size providing a safe experience at no cost for the artists and guests. 

Featured artist Leila Parnian executed a live painting, while fashion designer KCRS set the scene with an avant garde gold fashion installation. Creative vibes flowed while guests enjoyed music, vendors, food, and drink. 

First Friday is our chance to assist creatives that need the extra help in our current situation, whether through featured showcases, vendor opportunities, or resources and connections.

Moving forward, plans to execute the event include open mic night auditions for musical performances, interactive art experiences, fashion shows, and a flood of partners and guests coming on board, all looking to help bring back the beloved First Friday event in a new way.

If you would like to get involved don’t hesitate to reach out. Our next First Friday will take place March, 5th.
