There is a never ending passion that burns inside of us as creators. Through our similarities we become this growing collective of dedicated artists. Our skills vary from visual arts, photography, musical performance and composition, to even event curation. We do this because we believe in art. There are no borders when you gather to appreciate the arts. This was all made more apparent through last three days. .
Thank you. Truly. Thank you from our entire family.
You all made these three years completely worth it. It means the world to be able to host social events with our friends, family, and fans of this project. We plan to continue to deliver these experiences for years to come. Initially by design we wanted to become a new standard on how to discover new and incredible talent.
We embarked on a journey to celebrate three years of life. From Shreveport, to Lafayette, to New Orleans, the Portculture music and arts experience touched down in some of the most incredible places.
The Agora Borealis in Shreveport, Basin Arts Studio in Lafayette, and Breathing Waters Gardens in New Orleans were all brilliant hosts and locations for us. Thank you for allowing us to open a portal to celebrate the arts with you and your community. This was honestly a huge success. We are entirely too grateful for being given this opportunity. One of the coolest parts was supporting our sponsors Urban South Brewery and spreading their lovely product along Louisiana just in time of their 2 year anniversary.
This man is named Jacob. He is the president and founder of Urban South. Congratulations for your most welcoming and successful brewery. You have helped us more than you could possibly imagine.
This adventure was everything we could have asked for. We look forward to coming back and turning on the Portculture experience again to keep them growing and developing each time. We want to send love to all of the performing artists who shared the stages with us. This is certainly an experience you have to witness in person to fully understand and appreciate. Discovering new talent in the static of ads and the inconsistency of algorithms you might assume that the web and how to find new work is being programed.
We want to be a window into what’s new and completely worth your time.
To everyone who was apart of this and if you’re reading this right now, we can’t express how thankful we are to have you involved.

When you could have just been at home hanging out on Facebook or Twitter or being a thirst-bucket, instead you entered this realm with us. We owe you our love from now until the end of space time. Thank you for helping our dreams become a reality.
We honestly wish there was enough time in the day to write about each moment that happens within the different compartments of Portculture but that’s where we leave the option to follow the #portculture tag on any social network platform.
If you ever want to attend any of our showcases we would recommend emailing your first and last name to email@example.com
