WWNO Hosts Culture Collision 9

Aug 30, 2017

For nine years WWNO has been the proud host of this unique happy hour that kicks off the cultural season in New Orleans! The event, held Wednesday, Aug. 30 featured 90 visual and performing arts organizations, great deals on tickets, a free raffle, live performances, and a chance to mingle with other arts lovers.

Someone once likened Culture Collision to a trade show, but it’s so much more. This year, the annual happy-hour to kick off New Orleans’ vibrant cultural season is slated for Wednesday, September 2, from 5:30 – 8:30 p.m. Culture Collision 7 will take place at The National WWII Museum's U.S. Freedom Pavilion: The Boeing Center, and is free and open to the public.

This week on Inside the Arts, the "Happy Hour" with a purpose: Culture Collision celebrates its 5th Anniversary, kicking off the 2013-14 cultural season. We  journey to the Arts District for conversation with a gallery owner who finds herself giving away the gallery's income. And we round out with a cabaret show that will have you humming tunes from your summer road trip.

Airs Tuesdays at 1 p.m. and Thursdays  at 7:35 a.m.

The Advocate took a look at Culture Collision, calling it "a trade show for the arts in New Orleans." The fifth annual Culture Collision is Wednesday, Aug. 28, from 5:30 to 8 p.m. at Generations Hall. It's free and open to the public.
