NOTE: Though we've stopped registration for this event, we'd still love to have you at the event. Just stop by Bellocq and join us!
The New Orleans Center for Creative Arts is turning the big 4-0, and we need you to help to kick off a year-long celebration! Whether your time at NOCCA was spent at UNO, at NOMA, on Perrier Street, or in the Faubourg Marigny, whether you were a student, a faculty member, or on staff, please join us for a very special get-together:
THIS WEDNESDAY, APRIL 30, 5PM - 9PM
Bellocq at the Hotel Modern
936 St. Charles Avenue at Lee Circle
Complimentary hors d'oeuvres courtesy of The Boxcar
Cash bar * Happy hour from 5pm - 7pm
Catch up with your former classmates or co-workers. Tell us what you're doing now. Enjoy complimentary treats from The NOCCA Institute's newest project, The Boxcar food truck. And of course, give us your thoughts about next year's official 40th birthday blowout.
We'll also share some exciting news about upcoming events, and we'll shoot brief video clips of anyone who wants to tell the world what NOCCA meant to them. It'll be a fun, casual way to reconnect with friends and the school you once called home.
We look forward to seeing you Wednesday night!
When & Where
The NOCCA Institute
Founded in 1973, the New Orleans Center for Creative Arts is Louisiana’s arts conservatory for high school students. NOCCA offers intensive instruction in Classical Music, Creative Writing, Culinary Arts, Dance, Drama, Jazz, Media Arts, Musical Theatre, Theatre Design, Vocal Music, Visual Arts, and academics. Students come from across Louisiana, attending via full-day, afternoon, and after-school sessions. Admission to NOCCA is by audition, and there is no tuition.
The NOCCA Institute is NOCCA’s nonprofit partner, providing supplemental funding for NOCCA and advocacy for its world-class program. Some of the Institute’s more notable endeavors include: a comprehensive Financial Aid Program that funds students’ supplies and fees associated with important summer training programs across the country; an Artists-in-Residence Program that brings more than 100 professional visiting artists into NOCCA’s classrooms each year; the capital campaign for NOCCA’s current home and expansion projects along the Press Street corridor, including Press Street Station, 5 Press Gallery, and Press Street Gardens; and concert, gallery, and literary events for the community. The Institute also oversees rentals of the NOCCA campus, making it available to arts organizations, individuals, corporations, and other groups.
Unless otherwise noted, we're unable to issue refunds. If an event takes place over multiple days, however, we'll do our best to honor such requests by switching tickets to a different time.
