Members, friends, and the amazing network that helped make The Shop at the CAC happen all gathered last month for the Grand Opening celebration! Food and drinks flowed, and tours of the brand new space were available throughout the evening. DJ Musa, curator of The Shop’s custom daily playlist, was on hand to provide the music and featured artist Dapper Bruce Lafitte, whose work can be seen on the 4th floor, churned out original sketches for all the attendees to take home. Domain Principal Matt Schwartz addressed the crowd, providing a brief history behind the thinking that went into the development of the space and thanking everyone for their part in making it a reality.
The Shop is the first coworking space of its kind in New Orleans, equipped with a full suite of amenities, benefits, and programming aimed at strengthening the growing entrepreneurial fabric of Downtown. Located in the historic Contemporary Arts Center, The Shop brings together a diverse community of professionals, businesses, and cultural organizations to serve as a network for the city’s brightest innovators. The grand opening was the first of many milestones and events to be celebrated in the space, and we hope you will join us for more in the future!
