Members of the KZNSA community have been wondering what happened to the First Thursday activations at the gallery. Due to the Glenwood load-shedding schedule (18h00-20h00 on a Thursday) they have moved the First Thursday vibes to Fridays.

Instead of once a month, the KZNSA Arts Café is open every Friday night until 21h00 and the gallery has extended viewing hours until 18h00.

Each Friday has all the attractions of a First Thursday with live acts such as Sbu Shabalala, Flatfoot Dance Company, Zawadi Yamungu, DJ Zen and The Grand Duke, plus many more. Friday evenings are made for people who love culture and art and want to enjoy themselves in a safe, relaxed and family-friendly space.

The Arts Café has a complimentary cocktail hour where you buy-one, get-one-on-the house from 17h00-18h00. Think Aperol Spritz, Cranberry Sidecar, Mojito and Shaken Margaritas. There’s also a specials menu for all palates that includes our spicy bean enchilada, prawn pasta, pizzas and burgers.

KZNSA - KwaZulu Natal Society of Arts is situated at 166 Bulwer Road, Glenwood, Durban. Contact 031 277 1705 or visit
