If bigger really is better, then New Orleans arts lovers are in for a treat at Culture Collision 5 – the unique happy-hour that kicks off the 2013-14 cultural season. The largest CC celebration ever is slated for August 28, from 5:30 to 8 p.m. at Generations Hall, with a ticketed after-party featuring local, beloved funk/rock band Morning 40 Federation from 8 – 10 p.m.
The annual event brings together more than 60 of New Orleans’ nonprofit visual and performing arts organizations for a one-night-only event designed to encourage participation in the New Orleans art scene. Attendees can scope out upcoming performances, take advantage of exclusive ticket promotions and meet like-minded arts lovers.
In celebration of five successful years, Culture Collision 5 boasts pop-up performances by select organizations, a huge free raffle and a free photo booth. Multiple cash bars and a variety of food vendors will also be on site. Members of the local media can set-up camp and report, tweet and interview representatives from participating organizations in the exclusive Media Center, also new this year.
When 8 p.m. rolls around and the main event closes, Morning 40 Federation takes to the stage in the Big Room to wow the audience with all their hits. Tickets to the after-party are $10 in advance online or $12 at the door.
Culture Collision parking is available for $10 in the Fulton Street Garage, and additional street parking is available.
The event is hosted by WWNO, sponsored by New Orleans & Me, Generations Hall, Canary Collective and Barcadia. It is organized by the Arts Council of New Orleans, Louisiana Philharmonic Orchestra, Loyola University Montage Series, New Orleans Ballet Association, New Orleans Opera Association, the Ogden Museum of Southern Art and Southern Rep.
