Summer Up Late

QAGOMA’s Summer Up Late Series is back with a host of after-hours events. Check out your favourite exhibitions (did someone say Yayoi Kusama?) while checking out DJ sets, talks and performances by Laurel Halo and Lupa J in the River Room Stage. Get your tickets, here.

Terrarium Workshop

Put those resolutions into practice this year by trying something new! We’re big fans of The Soul Pantry’s Terrarium Workshops, and their first evening class of the year is one to really get stuck in to. Join Patricia as she helps you create a living masterpiece that you get to take home and show off to your pals. Neat! Book your place, here.
