Creative professionals are forced to suffer the slings and arrows of censors – until now.
Works In Progress Louisiana’s first fundraiser event is dedicated to artists, poets, musicians, and other cultural workers who want to express their intellectual freedom in a safe space – right here in North Louisiana.
Cultural consumers attending this event will experience (and purchase!) the raw, emotional, challenging work of regional creatives – work that you won’t see at your local gallery or coffee shop.
March 15 @ 3PM – Artists drop off installation-ready work at 846 Texas Avenue/minicine?, and complete a submission/donation form. If you are showing previously censored work, please write a one page account of your experience…these will be posted with your work. (Keep in mind: this event is rated R.) All performing artists for this event have been pre-screened and are already scheduled.
March 16 – Installation of work
March 17 – Date of the event | The performance part of the show will be hosted by The Savage Chuck, loin cloth, sword and dinosaur fighting, included! Also featuring musical guest, Ian Quiet!
March 18 @ 3PM – Artists pick up remaining work
