Cooking up a creative storm, Digbeth First Friday storms into March with a typically varied and vibrant array of offerings from free Indian Street Food and Ice cream cookery lessons to multi-medium clubbing and cloud-gazing. Vivid Projects will also be opening its doors to the 2018 re-launch of Black Hole Club, a club event curated by a cutting edge collection of 22 artists whose work spans technology, film, sound and performance based practices. Elsewhere cartoonish figures float amidst a wash of abstraction in Francesco Polazzi’s colourfully surreal solo exhibition premiering at Stryx, combining images of the human form with clouds to signify our ever-changing forms. Aside from the art, this month’s DFF also has a large emphasis on food and edible treats. Grand Union are welcoming a display as well as edible dishes made of cheese all up for surreal delectation in their recent Melanie Jackson exhibition Sweet Dream are Made of Cheese, and the 2018 opening of the Kitchen Food School will be taking place at Wharfinger’s House, hosting an array of free taster classes ranging from how to make ravioli, to Indian street food and even ice cream, book your free slot quick. There will of course also be plenty of street eats & free beats to be had at Digbeth Dining Club too, the perfect place to fuel this fabulous culture-fest of free delights.
