PASIFIKA FIRST FRIDAYS
Pasifika First Fridays is a Salt Lake City based art cooperative dedicated to celebrating Pacific Islander artists and art every first Friday of the month. Our monthly festival aims to unite Utah community members and give Pacific Islander artists the chance to perform, sell, or showcase their art.
We invite Pacific Islander artists living and working in Utah and beyond to join the festival each month for an opportunity to collaborate, create, and engage community centered resources and perspectives.
