Creative Connect — June 27th

Creative Connect, a monthly meet up hosted by The Parlor and NOVAC:BR, exists to create a space for the Louisiana creative community to be inspired to dream bigger and execute projects together.

The Parlor is located at 705 St. Joseph St, Baton Rouge. Creative Connect is every last Tuesday of the month. As always, we provide free beverages and good company.

This month, it will be held on June 27th from 7pm-9pm. Join us for an evening of screenings of and conversations about locally made short films. The Creighton Brothers will be sharing their short film, The Engagement and Michael Seaberry will show us his new project, The Mississippi Crying. We’ll then open the screen to others who want to share works in progress or completed projects of no more than 15 minutes. If you’re interested in participating, please email for more information.
