  • New Orleans, LA (1888PressRelease) August 22, 2018 - On Saturday, October 20, CRESCENT CITY CREATIVE will host their inaugural CRESCENT CITY CREATIVE CARNIVAL (C4), a gathering of creative professionals and entrepreneurs, from all areas of the arts, in one of the most celebrated culture capitals in the world— New Orleans, Louisiana. The events will take place steps from the French Quarter along Frenchmen Street in the Faubourg Marigny neighborhood nearest to the river. This event is designed for and will bring together top musicians, visual artists, graphic designers, fashion designers, creative directors, marketing executives, content producers, and more.

    The goal of the Crescent City Creative Carnival is to create an environment ideal for Artists & Creatives to gather, collaborate, and network. With a multi-year rollout plan, never before has there been this type of curated experience that brings artists and creators together to showcase their work and talents, learn something new, give-back, unwind, and leave inspired.

    This year’s Crescent City Creative Carnival will feature panel discussions and exhibitions programmed for an international, multicultural and multigenerational creative audience. With professional development topics around industry trends, work-life-balance, how to monetize content across multiple digital channels, as well as a limited track system focusing on Music, Visual Art, Fashion, and Entrepreneurship. Louisiana State Entertainment will also sponsor a conversation on local opportunities for creatives and artists.

    “Growing up in New Orleans, I’ve seen the talent this city both produces and attracts. Our goal is to help our creative peers discover potential resources, turn their brainstorms into businesses, and make NOLA the creative industry center it should be,” said event creator and creative director, Willard Hill.
