Aug. 15th - 17th

THIRD SHIFT is a festival of public contemporary artworks presented by Third Space, a not-for-profit artist-run centre in Saint John, New Brunswick. Established in 2015, THIRD SHIFT aims to offer citizens a unique opportunity to engage with contemporary art and re-imagine their city. THIRD SHIFT holds space for new experiences and communal exchange through the exhibition of temporary installations, interventions, performances and projections in the heart of Uptown Saint John. THIRD SHIFT is proud to announce it has expanded its schedule to include two days of artistic presentations and workshops leading up to our signature nighttime exhibition on Friday, August 17th, 2018. All activities are free of charge and open to the public.

Doing It Together

There are so many ways to be involved in THIRD SHIFT! Third Space is now looking to connect with interested community partners, venue owners, volunteers and sponsors to participate in this year’s festival.



THIRD SHIFT is an evolving project and labour of love for Third Space. We’re proud that over the last three years it has grown into an annual festival made possible through generous community support. Thank you to this year’s funders and sponsors!
