One Night Stand gets busy

Kat Shubaly brings “quick-and-dirty” performances and visual arts to random locations around the city.

One Night Stand gets busy
Special Costello’s One Night Stand.

Back in May, Kat Shubaly decided she wanted to give free art to the public, and she wanted it to be quick and dirty. As it turned out, the city wanted her to, too. HRM's Open Projects got behind Shubaly's One Night Stand idea: a series of pop up galleries that will appear one night a week, on a busy street corner or maybe a popular public space, and showcase music, visual arts, theatre or film quickly and unexpectedly. Her Nocturne-type presentations were planned with the aim of engaging spaces, and people, that such events might not normally reach. Friday kicks off the series with live music from Special Costello, Dream Friends and Old and Weird in the park, but for the other three'll have to keep your ear to the ground and your feet on the street. You never know what you'll stumble upon during that evening stroll.

Fri Aug 12, Victoria Park, Spring Garden Rd and South Park St, 9pm
