Saturday May 19th we celebrated the fifth instillation of the Portculture art show at Urban South Brewery. We had the honor of hosting this show in partnership with Pecha Kucha – a global network where creatives share their stories over a slideshow of images in a 20 x 20 format (20 slides with 20 seconds per slide). During the same time we announced our pledge to the ELLO creator’s network platform.
ELLO is a new social network platform that’s geared to helping artist gain more visibility and opportunity with their Artist Invite technology. They participate in global artists call helping artists have their work placed in galleries and publications across the globe.
We had the honor of introducing their site live to our audience before it begins spreading across the city of New Orleans.
Major thanks yet again to the many who supported our project and has allowed it to grow. Huge shout out to our family at Urban South Beer for keeping the arts scene thriving in New Orleans. It’s incredible to see how much we have accomplished in five months.
Our programs continue to evolve, please join us as we begin even newer chapters to empower the artists in New Orleans. Follow our story on ELLO to see featured artists and a behind the scenes look at our journey unfolding.
