Send us your art. Get involved.
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.
We will be curating a space for grassroots brands and start-ups at a majority of our art gatherings. We want to promote the start of early brands and provide opportunity for networking and commerce. If this is something you, or a friend are building we would love to hear from you.

Sometimes you just have to release some stress and sing along with your homies. Jawuan Ford is peeking and taking the rap world by surprise. We highly suggest you give his music a listen and maybe a follow here and there.

Last night we shared another accomplishment together. Last night we celebrated the second kick-off for The Arts Renaissance – New Talent Tuesday. The Arts Renaissance is a six month collaboration within the arts community of New Orleans and surrounding cities of the third coast that aims to build artistic value with curated performances and art gatherings. We have been planning unique experiences for our friends and family to be apart of that promote the growth of beat makers, hip-hop artists, live bands as well as brands and visual artists.
During the fall of last year we began building a partnership with EIFFEL SOCIETY to cater to the vast emerging arts community and provide an outlet for new fans, friends, and philanthropists to enjoy this experience in a new setting. Our initial model of the program was founded to connect creators to new fans or lovers of this life style in an inclusive and inviting atmosphere.
All of our New Talent events will take place at EIFFEL SOCIETY. The structural masterpiece adorns the street St. Charles right outside of the CBD of New Orleans. The building itself was shipped over from parts of a restaurant that rested atop of the Eiffel Tower in Paris, France.
We have a lot planned in the works for the revival of pure artistic culture. By artists for artists is our foundation. Collaboration is our fuel. PORTCULTURE is a collective that spans the third coast. Our recent progress in New Orleans has built a large list of other creatives who firmly support this initiative in the way we are presenting it as. This has really impacted the structure of our project and we plan to grow with our partners together through out this six month process.
Tweet or tag #portculture on any social media and you are sure to find us.
Thank you for helping the months and years of planning for this come to life.
