This Place


This fall, the Art Council’s Youth Solutions team, in collaboration with Dryades Public Market, ASHE, YAYA, and the Historic New Orleans Collection, will kick off a three-part storytelling series titled ‘This Place.’

Each part will focus on a different theme, with the first one, taking place on October 7, from 6-9pm at the Dryades Public Market, centering on the theme of Food & Culture. The events will feature a number a storytellers from the community and also provide time for audience members to share stories as well — so come ready to share! 

The stories that emerge throughout the series will be documented and archived by the Historic New Orleans Collection and serve as the launchpad for three youth-led creative placemaking projects in Central City.
