Friday, June 21. 7:00 to 11:00 pm.

Now in its third successful season, ROM Friday Night Live (FNL), the city’s singular social destination calls on Mesopotamia for its June 21st edition – the season’s finale. With an additional charge, the exhibition is open for viewing prior to its public opening the next day. Middle Eastern wares, from jewellery to fashion apparel to beauty items, are for sale in the exhibition’s boutique. The feature exhibition’s content lends itself to themed activities in galleries throughout the ROM. Entertainment is provided by two house DJs and the evening’s live performances include a multi-media presentation by Juno-nominated composer/DJ Adham Shaikh. Multi award-winning and JUNO-nominated Jaffa Road also appear. Mesopotamia has been credited with inventing beer, making this ancient culture a particularly fitting theme for the FNL season finale!
