If you haven’t heard, there is a new and fun online magazine called DIY City Mag. They spotlight cities that have a strong DIY community, its resources and features cool indie designers and artists from the area. The latest issue is on New Orleans, a city that has always been artist friendly, of all sorts of art genres; music, fine art, street performance, etc. A little birdy (me!) wrote a wee article about the New Orleans Craft Mafia in this very issue. Yep, who would have thunk it!
So, sit back and have a good read about NOLA on DIY City Mag. Plan next years Mardi Gras trip around this issue and come back with something other than plastic beads! Unless its a lamp shade made from Mardi Gras beads, then that would ROCK!
The next issue will be all about Washington, DC, with a launch sometime right before the election. If you are an designer/artist in the area, they are looking for you! Contact them at email@example.com.
The Richmond Craft Mafia will be featured on Virginia Currents this week. Our segment had been postponed and had been rescheduled sense my last post about it. The show will air on WCVE Channel 23 February 7th at 8:00 pm. If you miss it you can also check it out on Saturday at 5:30 pm or Sunday at 12:30 pm. Excitement!!
If you are local to Virginia please check out todays Virginia Currents. The Richmond Craft Mafia will be featured in segment called, … “learn how a group who call themselves the “Craft Mafia” take on mass production with a vengeance”. And possibly there will be footage of me talking about the RCM and the indie/DIY/craft movement in general. I am very excited since it is a show I do love to watch and peek in to all the behind-the-scene stories they feature. But I am also freaked out about it because I tend to be painfully shy and there I’ll be on camera. May the editors be merciful and I sound coherent!
In Richmond the show will air on WCVE on January 17th at 8:00 pm. If you miss it you can also check it out on Saturday at 5:30 pm or Sunday at 12:30 pm.
