Hello friends, family, and loved ones.. welcome to the future, and welcome to the new world. We want to start off by saying thank you for sticking around and tuning in with the portculture project and supporting our collective of artisans and creators from all walks of life. We want to really speak out in this current time of turmoil in the reality that exists around us for it hits home on many levels… as an arts collective we found it difficult to speak out but shortly came to the conclusion it’s our job to share our current state artistically and mentally. It is up to you to be the positive change you wish to see.
Breaking The Ice…
Together we witness the evolution of our society attempting to cut the remaining ties to oppression and the separatist social stigmas. Over time we have done our best as a society and species to reach out to one another through the kindness of our hearts. We believe we should do more than tolerate, we should be accepting one another. Divided we fall. . In a time where it’s almost impossible to form the right words to not offend anyone we will do our best to touch base with you all and to come under a common understanding that fear and violence is not the answer.
It’s clear that a chain reaction from years of challenges to form a more sensible culture comes with its effects .. we are here to say that we are here for you all in this challenging time. We strongly believe the influence of art can not only save lives, but help you come to a common understanding that isn’t limited by race, religion, or gender. We create with a very progressive and forward mentality.
A Current Solution…
Project Portculture was created specifically to bring people together under common interest that does not need to have language or borders. Art does not have a color. Creation does not have a side. Music does not have a gender. It’s our right to be able to manifest what we desire. It is our right to inspire. We create with love in our hearts. We create with positive intention. Never lose sight of this and continue to keep your head held high. Do not walk the streets in fear, instead look to the light. You can feel the difference of what it’s like to be inspired or to be afraid. We encourage you to leave aggressive nature behind and evolve with us.  Words have power, use your words with positive intention.
If you or a loved one needs solace in this time or someone to talk to, please email us directly at firstname.lastname@example.org or directly reach a few of our team members:
thank you – with love – project portculture
 Communicate with another human genuinely regardless of their background. Coming together is the key to community, the exact purpose of our project. We are a community of arts and culture.
 The rough breakthroughs of acceptance in America leaving generational gaps in culture being slow to accept the new age.
 “reacting out of fear or anger never leaves a solution. how could we be so blind to think violence gives birth to peace, educate yourself and become a leader in this realm” – Evan Thibedeaux / silent planet / portculure
through the looking glass and into the raw music and arts movement that is #portculture.
we collectively work together to build a tidal wave of creation and culture.
we are here to inspire and create a generation for tomorrow.
Cop is a take on new musical fusion of hip hop and synth wave, packing messages in pockets of “vibe downs” (what we used to know as breakdowns until now). Hip-hop is constantly evolving and taking new forms throughout generations. It’s always being interpreted in many ways.
Cop is a refreshing interpretation of sound for fans of rap and soul. The entire song is produced by our very own Samwyse Ganja, an upcoming producer currently based in the third coast (originally from Washington, DC). Together Samwyse and Keith are writing a new album coming out later in the year and are picking up tours in the gulf coast.

More coming soon, we are so taken away…
the music and art is unstoppable.
Hello friends and portfamily, good morning. We would like to start off sharing our appreciation for everyone taking involvement and interest in our collective project. Thank you for your blessings and encouragement.
Today we are introducing Mike Hazel to the portfamily. Hazel, a Washington DC native, is a young, rich, ambitious, rebel that walks the streets sharing art, spreading the good news of local culture and the mighty DoloWan papers for all your rolling-up needs. Self made and driven, our renegade takes steps in bettering not only his life, but the lives of his artistic friends around him.
We linked up by chance and began to share our story together, and it was magic how the passion matched the drive to succeed and better the world around us through art, creation, and interaction.
It’s our unique vision of this realm that has allowed our paths to cross.
Hazel also has been collaborating with local musicians by helping produce their own batch of rolling papers under the name DoloWan, providing a unique product to any and all who request them.
The artistic entrepreneur says, “At the end of the day the artist uses the ‘canvas’ to reinterpret an impression from the world around them. Some replicate an image to where it can be a mirror image but I’d rather give my customer a bit more than that. I want them to see the freedom that art gives me in everyday life. So I’m not going to always create within the lines but more so feeling based. You will see me break down and distort the world around to show you that everyone’s view of this world is unique.”
His future is as bright as the color of his pallet.
Give his social media links a buzz and check out his Soundcloud for some of his music as well, highly recommended:
It feels great to build this site from the back end, we are counting days for our first official web launch and to our first music and arts showcase in New Orleans, Louisiana. We are currently plotting together on how we will make this such a unique experience with our fellow attendees and PORTfamily. If you subscribed to our launch you will be added to a special guest list, basically we have to figure out who our lovely members are, stay posted.
One of our next artist write ups will feature upcoming artists of (Silent Planet). We will be catching some words and sharing some quality time with the group at the Vans Warped Tour in New Orleans, Louisiana on June 27th. We look forward to hearing the groups journey, their realization of how much attention their message is receiving and the direction they plan to go as a band when releasing EVERYTHING WAS SOUND on July 2nd. We are filled with joy to be consumed with them in the third coast. Above is a video still of their latest visual release “Orphan” and you can watch this by clicking here.
