The Event That Changes Shreveport!

Don't Miss your chance at being a part of it!


Nick Cave

This Internationally renowned artist can be found in the Smithsonian, MOMA, Crystal Bridges and more!

The Community

Meet the people becoming a part of the performance through their works and their stories.

The Artists

Local artists picked by Nick work with the community to produce works for the
March 20 Performance.

People throughout the Shreveport community are encouraged to “bead a part” of the Nick Cave experience by participating in fun, public “Bead-a-Thons” to help string beads for the blankets to be used in the March 20th performance.

NICK CAVE is in Shreveport/Bossier to do something he has never done before:  to work alongside public volunteers and local artists to construct blankets for use in the next major Nick Cave performance, “AS IS.”  These blankets and a production that includes local dancers, musicians and spoken word artists will symbolize the “hidden stories” of people of the social service agencies of our own Shreveport Common neighborhood.

Marathon Beaders (30 + hours)

are entered to win
A TRIP TO CHICAGO to tour Nick Cave’s Studio, Meet the Nick Cave Fabricators
Roundtrip Airfare, 2 Hotel Nights, Dinner and  An Unforgettable NICK CAVE ART EXPERIENCE.
