Creative Connect is a monthly gathering of creatives of all types from around Louisiana. Presented by The Parlor and NOVAC:BR, it is a curated night that allows for creatives to cast vision for their projects to others, connect with the community, and hear from key note speakers sharing and revealing their current projects.
