Event Details

The Rising Tide Conference is an annual gathering for everyone who loves New Orleans and is working to bring a better future to all its residents.

Leveraging the power of bloggers and new media, the conference is a launch pad for organization and action.  Our day-long program of speakers and presentations is tailored to inform, entertain, enrage and inspire.

Past featured speakers included Harry Shearer (writer, actor, host of the weekly radio show Le Show), John Barry (author of Rising Tide), and Dave Zirin (author of Welcome to the Terrordome).

Participants are encouraged to Blog, Twitter, Facebook and otherwise connect and share with others in attendance and around the world.  The goals of Rising Tide are numerous, but are briefly:

  • We seek to protect and preserve the cultural qualities of New Orleans that make our city so unique.
  • We resolve to root out and expose the corruption and incompetence that harms us all.
  • We work to enact a vision of restored and resilient community that respects traditions and reaches for a sustainable future for all citizens.


Join us as we map out the course of this great city now and into the future!
