6:30 COCKTAIL HOUR * Have a drink with fellow creatives, peruse work on display by local artists, enjoy beats by DJ Diagnosis, check out the live graffiti, and take a picture in the prodigious Michael Donnor's polaroid photo booth. That's right - we're not only having a slideshow of art - it's going to be on the walls and created before your eyes! Featured work by Christian Taylor, Li Pallas, Kate Hanrahan, and others.

7:30 POTLUCK * This part's all about YOU! New Orleans is known for its food - now show everyone what you've got - and whet their appetite by putting a teaser on the Dish Sign Up page. We're also going to have a grill on-site, so bring some burgers for the barbie or enjoy one of our toasted treats. And to top it off, Hollygrove Market and Farm, a community-owned non-profit store and training farm that sells food items, including locally grown organic produce and locally sourced organic dairy and meats, will be providing some dishes using the products they sell in their store. In season. Local. FRESH!

9pm SLIDESHOW * The theme of the slideshow is "community," so, in keeping, two New Orleans locals will be curating: SLPS New Orleans Director, Andrea Caldwell, and Andy Levin, creator and curator of 100Eyes, an online photographic showcase featuring contemporary photography including documentary, art, and alternative photojournalism. Only the first half of the slideshow will consist of themed work though; the second half will include any and all types.

If we take care of ourselves by eating healthy, take care of our wallets and our neighbors by buying locally, we will, in effect, be taking care of our community?

.... all taking place at The Big Room of Generations Hall, a former sugar refinery built in the 1820s and located in the Warehouse/Arts District:

If you’re unfamiliar with Slideluck Potshow: it’s essentially a potluck followed by an hour to 90-minute uniquely curated presentation of slideshows, with one artist’s body of work following another. To get a better idea read PopPhoto's article on SLPS here.
