Cultural Conversations: Sessions at NOWC at FestiGals with a NOLA Twist

May 23, 2016

The New Orleans Women's Conference at FestiGals is a day for professional and personal development. However, for those looking for a cultural beat, we have Cultural Conversations!


Outside the Kitchen with Leah Chase


FestiGals is honored to welcome 2016 James Beard Lifetime Achievement Winner, Leah Chase.

You will not want to miss this intimate conversation with the legendary "Queen of Creole Cuisine!"


Ladies Who Make Music


Jan Ramsey, editor of Off Beat Magazine, will interview the fabulous Germaine Bazzle, Stephanie Jordan, and Helen Gilett.



Women Who Make Parades


Amy Kirk, Founder of the Krewe of Joan of Arc, will interview Virgina Saussy - Krewe of Muses, Julie Lea- Krewe of Nyx, and Camille Baldassar- The Pussyfooters


 From My Spirits to Yours



Sallie Ann Glassman is a manbo asogwe – a high priestess of the Vodou religion. She will share her experience of Vodou and the odd path that led a white, vegan, Ukranian-Jewish woman from Maine, to the practice of Haitian Vodou, and about the presence of Vodou in New Orleans’ history and how that has influenced the culture and traditions of the City.






Cultural Conversations are just one of the many offering FestiGals Girlfriend Getaway Weekend has to offer. Click an image below to see more info on these events...
