ABOUT House NOT For Sale NOLA
House Not For Sale Nola is a WCWM: Who's Coming With Me initiative dedicated to fighting against gentrification, the displacement of Black New Orleans native artists, and the loss of historic Black spaces.
Using the power of Black art, artists, businesses, and youth, HNFS Nola will host bi-annual virtual and online house art exhibitions and film screenings that raise awareness and funds towards supporting Black New Orleans native existence in New Orleans.
One key component of HNFS Nola is to turn a featured Black New Orleans native artists home or space into pop-up indoor and outdoor art shows.
In addition, we will host educational info-sessions, panels, and workshops on ways the New Orleans community and beyond can come together to reduce gentrification in New Orleans and create more sustainability for Black New Orleans native artists as well as historically Black spaces in New Orleans.
Curated by a team of multi-generational and multi-disciplined artists, and prioritizing artists and spaces in more immediate need, House Not For Sale Nola will use art and community as a weapon of empowerment against the current inequities that exist within New Orleans's housing and economics systems for Black people.
Together we can make sure Black New Orleans native artists and historic Black spaces in New Orleans do not become extinct.
Consider making a donation to our Go Fund Me campaign or via Cash App $WCWM.
As always, thanks for supporting Black artists, businesses, and youth in New Orleans.
