“Artist-Activist coming to NOLA for V-Day. . . Need a place to stay!”
Since we were still a little short on funds for the trip, even youth-hostel lodgings were out of the question. I checked in with anybody and everybody that I knew who had connections in New Orleans to try to find a place for us to stay. At the 11th hour I got a round-about invitation to our posting on Craigslist. We were invited to stay with performance artist and NOLA Outreach coordinator, Asia Rainey, who would be leading an initiation ceremony of young girls at the V-day Super Dome event on Saturday morning. I couldn’t have imagined a more perfect match!
