This summer we will be introducing a new way to interact with the Portculture network.
As you already can imagine, with growth comes a grip of updates with us. We are elated to share these announcements. It’s only natural that we begin exploring new avenues to gain more exposure and visibility for not just us but the artists we support and showcase.
We’ve been working with the incredible team at Ello, “the creator’s network”, helping our artists gain exposure from an entirely different platform. At our fifth instillation of the Portculture art show we announced our pledge to the site and provided their Not For Print publications, stickers, and enamel pins for the audience to indulge. Hopefully our readers remember that. From this we no longer desire to post into the void of Facebook sharing our art and story. For Facebook we will: publish updates/articles made to our site, share announcements/accomplishments, and publish events for our remaining audience to help discover when we are hosting an exhibition or concert tour.
Using Ello our artwork is much more appreciated by true fans of art who flock to the site to explore and discover new artists and creators. Yes. This is a new frontier for creativity. No. Ello isn’t for everyone. Which is fine. We plan to use our account to showcase and feature artists in New Orleans to our growing network on Ello’s platform. We also will use our platform to share private events and behind the scenes growth for Portculture.

This summer we will be regularly activating our email newsletter. This is actually really exciting as we launched an email update the other day and it was received well by our friends who have been subscribed to us since the origin of our website. No unsubscribes even after we gave the option to. Who knows. Portculture isn’t for everyone either. Subscribe: join us here.
A good way to also RSVP for reminders for anything Portculture related is to email firstname.lastname@example.org stating you’re interested in being in the loop of our art events. This also allows you to be guest-listed at a majority of our events by receiving discounts on entry when there is an option for it.
The next art show will be on June 23rd at Urban South. If you are an artist interested in showcasing your work please make sure you give us your information. The sign up is really easy and takes no more than five minutes to fill out. Giving us your information helps locate you to remain in contact as well as send you the run down for the event. (Including flier, event details, set up, break down, etc.) Don’t sleep on this. It’s a solid opportunity to sell your art in the middle of the summer. Just plan with us. RSVP today.
Hope you’re enjoying life right now. We hope you’re remaining inspired. Being an artist is a wild lifestyle. Our team is dedicated to making sure we clear a new path for the dedicated artist. We are the gulf-coast art renaissance.
More updates soon to come. Music releases, artist interviews, and more coming up.
