Send us your art. Get involved.
Join us on our cosmic journey through the arts. Portculture is a collective artisans project by artists, for artists who want to effectively build through the passion of art. It’s actually happening. Thanks for following the journey. We want to give back to the arts community by curating this market together in collaboration with Urban South Brewery and a roster of various artists, creators, and organizations.
Starting January 13th, we’re beginning a monthly artisans market in partnership with Urban South Brewery. If you want to get involved just give us your information [here] it’s really easy. We want this to be a really beautiful project and show that you don’t have to charge artists vendor space to promote their work. (Like Facebook.) We want the renaissance to begin with movements likes these. Our combined strengths will serve as the catalyst for creative change throughout the arts community. We will provide a blue print for future generations. Thanks for being apart of this. [event page]

Renaissance man Mike Hazel, usually seen out at the function spreading positive vibes, wisdom, painting or being a dope lyricist- takes to the stage with us again at the MARDI GRAS LTD showcase at EIFFEL SOCIETY on Tuesday February 21st. Mike Hazel released LettersToADriveThruWindow a month ago on Janaury 15th. This six track EP is a total gem that we think you all should give a listen to sooner than later.
The melodies and rhymes of this melancholy monotone genius will leave you asking for more.

BY ARTISTS. FOR ARTISTS.
Happy Friday PORTfamily. Everyday for us is a work day. Everyday we are reaching out to new performers, landing new deals or opportunities for artists, finding new music from the area to share or listen to, and always building/updating our website. Working all season. It’s always important to give time for yourself while you tirelessly work on your craft, so remember that if anything. Never drive yourself too far into insanity.
We’re very thankful of the life we are making. We’re very thankful to have you apart of it. So we appreciate the love from the amount of effort put into keeping this growing. A lot of our readers have been contacting us giving thanks and showing appreciation for what we are trying to do.
What’s on your schedule tonight? Tag us.
Stay tuned for some announcements.
Much love and create something.
This is UNREAL. Thanks for helping us reach well over three thousand views for our site. We’re glad to know we have a consistent audience of nearly four hundred or more views per month. Even this is a number that’s growing. We are in infancy with our site currently. To come this far is remarkable. We want to show love for everyone who is supporting the collective and following our journey. We are very conscious of the impact we have made in less than a year. It’s done through strategy and dedication really.
Giving life to this project has not been easy. Thanks for making it what it is though. This is completely a D.I.Y. cultural movement that’s been thought on for a very long time. Since 2015.
[Our mission is to bring artists to new levels this year allowing for new performances, new crowds, and more opportunity to meet other liked minded creators who are as equally dedicated or as professional in their craft.]

With #PORTCULTURE you may notice “be the creative change you wish to see” here and there on our sites and pages. You might be familiar with this phrase in a way already. If you want to see anything change or come about, you have to be the spark to that.
We want art gatherings and experiences in a way that’s interactive and more of a lifestyle than anything else. We are by artist for artist and will remain this way the entirety of the project. The goal of The Art Renaissance is to affect an area and change or influence it creatively. In a way that benefits the artist to create an opportunity to profit from our network and who we reach out to.
It’s done through organized art gatherings in the form of curated music showcases and art shows. We host TALENT TUESDAYS with EIFFEL SOCIETY and organize pop-up visual art shows called MAGIC BOX with The Rook Cafe currently. Atop of these we always make room for a market for grassroots brands, visual artists who have prints and art to sell etc. We highly encourage the support and cross breeding of projects and brands. That’s essentially what we are. This is all done entirely D.I.Y. with our partners and collective.
This project has been casting a pretty huge net into the artist community since it’s infancy in 2015.
We have to say it’s come a long way.
Thank you for taking the time to read this if you are viewing our site, join us for the MARDI GRAS LTD. SHOWCASE at EIFFEL SOCIETY on Tuesday and see what it’s all about.
