United Projects presents VENTILATION: an on-going public forum of inquiry into creative practices. VENTILATION is a discussion based platform in which individuals are able to explore and exchange creative ideas.
These conversations will be utilized to discuss topics of interest or concern, ideas-in-process and critique ongoing work. Topics will be generated from the group or from those deemed facilitators.
VENTILATION is a think-tank, where ideas are displaced from their internal shroud to a collective conscious, where they can be morphed and cultivated. Discussions convene weekly, hosted by a revolving door of organizations and spaces involved in visual art and other forms of creation.
Thursday, December 3rd @ 8 p.m. Hosted by:
FOUNDATION GALLERY ( 1109 Royal st. )
Meetings are free, all ages and open to the public. Wine and snacks will be provided.

Songs of Home Songs of Change is a cartographic audio installation piece collaboratively created by sculptor, Jebney Lewis, composer and electronic music artist, Rick Snow, writer, Christopher Staudinger, and a host of New Orleans high school students from Big Class, Si Academy, The Net Charter High School, Bard Early College of New Orleans, and Lusher Charter School.
This installation features a map of the wards of New Orleans, rendered in steel plates and sonified by electric transducers. The plates play fundamental resonant tones and an array of field recordings. These recordings, and the writings that accompany them, have been gathered and written by over 40 area high¬-school students in response to the prompt: “What does home sound like, and what are the sounds of its changing?”
The show will be in conjunction with CANO'S exhibit Honoring Willie White
