Galerie Porche West

Address:
3201 Burgundy
New Orleans

Description:

Throughout the intervening years, my curiosity concerning New Orleans’ culture transformed into a passionate mission to capture in photo-documentary the beauty and dignity of a people whose cultural traditions are being overwhelmed by the pressures of modern society. I am hopeful that this documentary process will stimulate further support for the “life force” within these “origin” communities. I seek to preserve for our future the distinct visions and traditions for use by historians, writers and the culturally curious.

Good Children Carnival Club

Good Children Carnival Club

Address:

Description:

The mission of the Goodchildren Social Aid & Pleasure Club is simple: to help revitalize St. Claude Avenue and the surrounding neighborhoods through celebration and cultural preservation.

To that end, we put on parades, community events, work with neighborhood organizations and arts groups, and with our Social Aid partners, St. Margaret's and Kamp Katrina/Busker's Bunkhouse.

Goodchildren (Bons Enfants) was the original name of St. Claude.

We are a grassroots organization, officially designated as a Louisiana non-profit. All funds raised go directly to support and produce the parade in the form of permits, NOPD escorts, insurance, supplies, music, and promotions.

We produce two parades per year, Easter and Fringe Festival, and often have a presence in other neighborhood activities, such as the Mirliton Festival, Anba Dlo, and NOLA Pyrate festivals.

All of our fundraising is done at the grassroots level, with donations and support from neighborhood groups, local businesses, and arts organizations and individuals,

For information on how to be a sponsor or how to support a parade, go to Support .

Jose Torrés-Tama Studio

Jose Torrés-Tama StudioMap
Website:
http://www.torrestama.com
Address:
1329 Saint Roch Ave
New Orleans

Description:

Through performance art, bilingual poetry, installation/visual arts, sound art projects, and critical writings, José Torres Tama explores the effects of media on race relations in the U.S., the "American Dream" mythology, and the Latino immigrant experience. His multiple performance aliases include "El Mephisto Moderno," "El Señor Futurístico," and "El Juan Bond," and they are exaggerated Latino hybrid personae of the new millennium on a mission to disturb the complacent psyches of monolinguistic and monotheistic audiences of "gringolandia."

Based in New Orleans, he has toured nationally/internationally for a dozen years. He is the recent recipient of "Fund for the Arts" Ford Foundation Fellowship awarded by the National Association of Latino Arts and Culture (NALAC) to develop his book manuscript entitled "The Dream Knows More than You: Performance Chronicles of a Latino Immigrant." A Louisiana Theater Fellow and an award recipient from the National Endowment for the Arts, his performances thrive on a fusion of spoken word, rituals of fire, conceptual movement, tableau installation, and exaggerated personae--creating spectacles that are visually dynamic and politically charged.

His solos have been presented in Mexico, Canada, Eastern Europe and extensively across the USA at venues such as Performance space 122 & Theater for the New City in New York, The National Hispanic Cultural Center in Albuquerque, Highways Performance Space in Los Angeles, DiverseWorks in Houston, and the Contemporary Arts Center in New Orleans. In the academy, institutions such as Cornell, Duke, Louisiana State, Dillard, Kalamazoo College, Rutgers and the University of Michigan have presented his provocative solos and academic lectures on performance art as a tool for social change.

Using performance strategies in diverse communities, he works with minority teens through his "Youth Performance Projects" and creates multigenerational performances across age, class, and racial borders to cultivate the voices of the marginalized. In addition, was a contributing editor to "ART PAPERS," a national arts magazine published in Atlanta, and he has written for the "Chicago New Art Examiner," "The Mexico City Times," and "Urban Latino Magazine" in New York.

His recent post-Katrina commentaries have aired on NPR's "Latino USA" and on WWNO, the local public radio station in New Orleans. These radio essays are part of a collection he is turning into a book called "Hard Living in the Big Easy: Exiled in New Orleans after Katrina."

Josephine Sacabo Studio

Josephine Sacabo Studio
Website:
http://www.josephinesacabo.com/
Address:
841 Franklin Avenue
New Orleans

Description:

“I believe in Art as a means of transcendence and connection. My images are simply what I’ve made from what I have been given. I hope they have done justice to their sources and that they will, for a moment, ‘stay the shadows of contentment too short lived.’” — Josephine Sacabo

Sacabo divides her time between New Orleans and Mexico. Both places inform her work, resulting in imagery that is as dreamlike, surreal, and romantic as the places that she calls home.

Born in Laredo, Texas, in 1944, she was educated at Bard College in New York. Prior to coming to New Orleans, Sacabo lived and worked extensively in France and England. Her earlier work was in the photo-journalistic tradition and influenced by Robert Frank, Josef Koudelka, and Henri Cartier-Bresson. She now works in a very subjective, introspective style, using poetry as the genesis for her work. Her many portfolios are visual manifestations of the written word, and she lists poets as her most important influences, including Rilke, Baudelaire, Pedro Salinas, Vincente Huiobro, and Juan Rulfo, Mallarmé, and Sor Juana Ines de la Cruz. Her images transfer the viewer into a world of constructed beauty.

During her 36 year career her work has been featured in over 40 gallery and museum exhibitions in the U.S., Europe and Mexico. She has been the recipient of multiple awards and is included in the permanent collections of the George Eastman House, the International Center of Photography, the Metropolitan Museum of Art and la Bibliothéque Nationale, Paris, France.

“De este cuerpo eres el alma, y eres cuerpo de esta sombra.”
(You are the soul of this body and the body of this shade.)
— Sor Juana Inés De La Cruz

Marigny Theater & AllWays Lounge

Address:
2240 St. Claude Ave
New Orleans

Description:

 

Gambit selected the young AllWays Lounge as one of the "Top 50 Bars of New Orleans." We also appeared on the list of "6 Bars for Gays & Lesbians"...the only bar included on both lists.

Where Y'at readers voted AllWays Lounge as "Best Bywater/Marigny Bar" and the Marigny Theatre as "Best Live Theatre & Best Theatre Venue."

Formerly the Marigny, the AllWays Theatre boasts a rich, decade-long history as New Orleans main space for LGBT theater. Now with a broadened but still queer-friendly mission under new management, it and the AllWays Lounge have established themselves as two of New Orleans' arts & entertainment hotspots, with exciting shows--music, burlesque, theater, performance art, and more--in each space almost every night. These are also home to inventive, experimental touring artists you won't catch in other venues.

The AllWays is close to ground zero for two other major elements of New Orleans cultural scene: annual events the New Orleans Fringe Festival and the Saints & Sinners Literary Festival.

Given the eclectic sweep of bookings at the AllWays, membership in this group is the best way to keep abreast of everything the spaces have to offer...not to mention community events, outreach programs, and plain ole drink specials.

OPEN Tue-Thu,Sun 6pm-12am, Fri-Sat 6pm-2am

New Orleans Center for Creative Arts

New Orleans Center for Creative ArtsMap
Website:

Address:
2800 Chartres Street
New Orleans

Description:

The New Orleans Center for Creative Arts is a regional, pre-professional arts training center that offers students intensive instruction in culinary arts, dance, media arts, music (classical, jazz, vocal), theatre arts (drama, musical theatre, theatre design) , visual arts, and creative writing, while demanding simultaneous excellence. NOCCA was founded in 1973 by a diverse coalition of artists, educators, business leaders, and community activists who saw the need for an institution devoted to our region’s burgeoning young talent. Today, Wynton and Branford Marsalis, Harry Connick, Jr., Terence Blanchard, Nicholas Payton, Jeanne-Michele Charbonnet, Wendell Pierce, and Saints former cornerback Ashley Ambrose are only a few NOCCA graduates who can attest to the extraordinary educational opportunity the Center represents to the children of Louisiana.

NOCCA’s track record over the past quarter-century speaks for itself: every year a remarkable 95 - 98% of NOCCA graduates go on to college and conservatory programs across the country—compared to only 56% of local non-NOCCA graduates. Furthermore, approximately 80% of NOCCA students receive scholarships to pursue such higher education. The key to NOCCA’s success is the ethic of discipline and responsibility it instills in students, which prepares them for productive adult lives whether or not they choose to pursue arts careers.

Admission to NOCCA is by audition only. Our annual application season takes place each fall for the following school year. Auditions take place each spring from applications received within the posted application deadline. For specific schedules please visit the application page.

Created and maintained by the Orleans Parish School Board for 27 years, NOCCA became a state agency in July 2000. The program is tuition-free to all Louisiana students who meet audition requirements. Currently, students from over 100 public, private and parochial schools attend in the afternoon, late-day, or during the summer session.
