Biography

Antenna had its beginnings as the artist and writer collective Press Street, and so much of this history refers to Press Street during the nearly 10 years it operated as such. The organization formed in 2005 with a mission to promote art and literature in the community through events, publications and arts education. Shortly after Katrina, Press Street began producing events in small businesses that had yet to reopen, including the Saturn Bar and Preservation Hall, to promote a symbiotic relationship between small businesses, non-profits and artists in the city’s rebuilding.
