Pass It On is a multidisciplinary art and performance series dedicated to the advancement and preservation of New Orleans’ artisan community. The series was created in 2008 to support grassroots efforts to reestablish New Orleans’ cultural footprint by providing a free, safe space for community artists and performers. Now in its ninth year, it seeks to incubate a residency component for early-career creatives. The program will provide stipends and professional mentorship opportunities, while leveraging current partnerships and an audience following to create a monthly platform for exposure, critique, and feedback.
