Inspired by the legacy of iconic visual artist, Douglas Redd (now deceased), local cultural workers are sending out a call to artists in all disciplines to gather for the 7th Annual Douglas Redd Cultural Summit.
This one-day gathering of the New Orleans cultural community will include a keynote address by award-winning artist Brandan “BMike” Odums, founder and director of 2-Cent Entertainment. Odums was the power behind “Project Be,” called a public art masterpiece by Doug Maccash, and organizer of the art collaborative #ExhibitBe, dubbed the largest graffiti gathering in the South. Panel discussions will be led by Carol Bebelle, co-founder and executive director of Ashé Cultural Arts Center; Kim Cook, president and CEO of the Arts Council of New Orleans; Flozell Daniels, president and CEO of Foundation for Louisiana; and Ashleigh Gardere, senior advisor for economic opportunity and director of the Network for Economic Opportunity. Bill Rouselle, president and CEO of Bright Moments, LLC, will moderate.
Following the panel discussion on available resources and opportunities, participants will join break-out groups to explore a handful of topics.
