The NOLA FOR LIFE channel broadcasts original and existing content to educate and inform citizens of the efforts to reduce the number of murders in New Orleans. Exclusively programmed for New Orleans Access Television (NOA-TV) Cox Channel 99, the content highlights information about the initiative through the airing of speeches, public service announcements, and relevant committee hearings. The content also features individuals, community and corporate organizations who are working together to change the culture of violence in New Orleans.
In support of the NOLA FOR LIFE Channel, the Office of Cultural Economy partnered with the Greenhouse Collective to employ local filmmakers to produce stories for the NOLA FOR LIFE channel. Local filmmakers videotape, edit and produce content. Additionally, the New Orleans Video Access Center (NOVAC) identified two additional production crews funded through a $6,700 grant from the Office of Cultural Economy. Both partnerships prepare participants for jobs in the film industry by providing real world experience in videography and editing.
The NOLA FOR LIFE channel also features shorts from 28 students, ages 15-16, participating in the 2-Cent Summer Session hosted at Xavier University. The media arts camp charged students in five groups to create engaging video projects under the five pillars of the NOLA FOR LIFE plan.
