THIRD SHIFT brings together local, national and international artists, the people and places of Saint John and the vibrancy of a summer night in the city. The experience is one that leaves residents re-imagining our historic city through contemporary art interventions – creating lasting memories and inspiring possibilities for the future. THIRD SHIFT has become a signature happening that is made possible through generous community support.  We ask that you consider becoming a part of this year’s event. Contact Third Space for sponsorship inquiries.


THIRD SHIFT is a growing project and labour of love. Each year we rely on our volunteers’ generosity to bring it all together. Volunteering is an amazing way to meet new people, participate behind the scenes and learn about the art projects in-depth. This year we’re expanding our THIRD SHIFT schedule to include two days of talks, workshops and art-making leading up to our signature night-time exhibition. We’re now looking for reliable individuals to join the team. Contact Ashton at thirdshiftassociate@gmail.com for more information or to sign up!
