Hosted by IU Arts and Humanities Council on the Fine Arts Plaza.
First Thursdays festivals showcase the diversity of arts and humanities at IU Bloomington and offer a welcoming environment for students, faculty, staff, and community members to explore new creative outlets. Previous festivals have included everything from opera to breakdancing, stage-fighting to clay-throwing, and much, much more. Each festival is a unique opportunity to experience the wonderful work of artists, performers, and scholars from all across campus and around town. Dates for the 2022–2023 school year are: September 1, October 6, November 3, and April 6.
