1st Friday

Assembly from a-n

5th May,
From 18.30 at Marine Studios

What We Have In Common

Established in 2009, this monthly event brings people from the Isle of Thanet together around a topic or theme. This month, it’s What We Have In Common.

As we sum up two days of workshops, debates and talks from a-n in venues across Margate, we’ll look at what we all agree we like about living and working on the Isle of Thanet. We’ll identify shared resources, discuss the idea of the commons, and look at what we can do next to support artists on the Isle of Thanet. And we’ll do it surrounded by some interesting examples of past work artists have made about the area.

More about 1st Fridays

The world’s fascinating, but we can all get stale. So join our community of the curious.

We put on events because we’re curious about the world and we believe that events bring communities together.


We’ve run 1st Fridays most months since November 2009.
Previous First Friday events have included performances, book launches, films, exhibitions, talks, installations and even picnics.


If you’d like to stage a 1st Friday (particularly if it touches on the link between science and art) just drop us an email.
