The Documentary Film Projects

The Documentary Film Projects are an ongoing and vital component to CAHP. These short films & webisodes broadcast online utilize footage shot and materials gathered by CAHP as well as archival photographs and ephemera. Throughout production and post-production CAHP will continue to show elements from this work-in-progress at our events and workshops, and eventually on the Interactive Website. These films are incorporating community ideas and input, with community voices and feedback driving much of the film’s focus. Thank you for your contributions. Ultimately we hope to create a documentary feature film from this material.

Exhibits, Panels, Roundtables & Workshops

CAHP is hosting panels, roundtables, and workshops with community members, artists, musicians, scholars, and historians. At our first annual CAHP Soirée we included an exhibit on the third floor at the New Orleans Jazz Museum, and hope to include video materials at future exhibits.

Using the media gathered from archives and the community CAHP hopes to curate mobile street exhibits bringing history out of the museums and onto the streets, where the juxtaposition of what was and what now is can be observed and addressed.
