Fans of New Orleans culture know Montana, 65, as a Mardi Gras Indian big chief who started masking at age 9 with his sister, Toki, and now leads his own tribe, Washitaw Nation.

By Teresa Wiltz  NEW ORLEANS — At 75, Deacon John Moore considers himself one of the lucky ones: The scion of three generations of music-making Creoles, he’s been able to sustain himself with his guitar, raise a family, buy a house. Most other musicians here, he says, aren’t so fortunate. He’s tooling around the streets of Tremé — one of the nation’s oldest black neighborhoods and the birthplace of jazz — in his ancient Volvo, pointing out all the gentrified houses, the ones with the jacked up rents. Everybody wants to live here now, he said.

In 2017, Artspace experienced tremendous momentum and manageable growth, with vibrant activity happening in each of our existing 40 projects in operation, as well as construction on six new projects in six communities. We created opportunities for low-income artists by providing more than $3 million in total rent subsidy, and thousands of people came through the doors of Artspace buildings to attend more than 600 performances, programs, exhibitions, and community events in our spaces.
