UNSCENE! IS a series created by The Shreveport Regional Arts Council (SRAC), which UNleashES SHREVEPORT COMMON, debuting the innovative look, feel, tastes, smells, and sounds of this new Uncommon Cultural Community. UNSCENE! events are comprised of national, regional and local artists who create and present UNconventional new works. Each UNpredictable , UNexpected, UNabashed, and UNabridged “UN” experience will leave an indelible mark that permanently advances Shreveport Common.
Academy Award winning director, animator, public art creator, and UNprecedented visionary Brandon Oldenburg serves as the UNSCENE! Artistic Director, overseeing a diverse Artists’ Management Team that curates UNSCENE!
Each UNSCENE! experience is UNlike any festival “scene” in Louisiana: 12 multidisciplined, pre-meditated but improvisational day-through-night Saturdays will feature transformational interactive Arts activities. Examples of these activities include Public Art Installations, Films projected in and on the buildings, Exhibitions in UNexpected spaces, Spoken Word on stoops, Theatre in the air, Dance in the garden, giant Puppet Theatre in the alley, a juried Street Arts Market, innovative Scavenger Hunts and Walking, Biking, and Float Parades.
Shreveport Common voted Best Community Development Project in the Nation at National Development Council conference in DC!
