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 firstname.lastname@example.org.
