Closer Walk NOLA is one part art project and one part community history project. It asks for the memories of New Orleans residents relating to shared music, dance and neighborhood culture in the wake of Katrina and the politics of rebuilding. There are many voices that speak for New Orleans' diverse culture of music and masking. A Closer Walk asks after the experience of everyone: families and working folks of all kinds, amateur and professional musicians, people on sidewalks and in bars.
If you are a New Orleans resident (or left NOLA after the storm), view your neighbors’ memories of 3 songs important to New Orleans culture—Just A Closer Walk With Thee, Indian Red, and When the Saints Go Marching In—and add your own.
