Abstract Nola is a creative collective committed to creating platforms for artists in all mediums. We create spaces where artists can flourish socially, professionally, & holistically.
ANO was created in February 2016, by husband + wife duo Antarah Leilani + Kenneth ‘Kulture’ Spears. The pair set out to create an event that highlighted the immense talent that the city had to offer while simultaneously providing a platform for the artists + entrepreneurs to showcase + sell their services/products. Thus the Art Party was born; New Orleans’ premier bi-weekly art party that showcased live performance + visual art, free passed hors d'oeuvres, and vendors. In its second year it launched Arts in The Park and the monthly Outdoor Concert + Market Series. 2017 also began the production of private events + brand activations.
ANO has become a hub for incubating talent in the city and produced over 70 events and worked with over 100 artists + entrepreneurs to date.
