THE
BLUE
HOUSE



NEW ORLEANS

A Shared Studio

The Blue House is a community where designers, writers, researchers, artists, activists, filmmakers, coders, teachers, entrepreneurs, developers, and others come together to share and shape a new kind of workspace. Located in the heart of Central City, right off the historic Oretha Castle Haley Boulevard, our space pays tribute to the neighborhood's legacy of convening, exchange, and transformative change.

Our space consists of two ground-floor rooms and a diverse upstairs space. The Commons is welcoming, communal, and casual; it's where new connections are made through the wide variety of programming that makes The Blue House more than a traditional coworking space. The Studio is lively, flexible, and can be easily reconfigured to accommodate workshops and group gatherings. The giant cork board and whiteboards make it perfect for sharing and collaboration. Our upstairs space is a quiet retreat for focused productivity, made up of permanent desk space, a conference room, comfy break out space, and private offices.

A Community

The Blue House is an intentional community; it is a space for a group of people who are interested in sharing their work, expertise, resources, and ideas with each other through informal conversations and shared programming. This pooling of interests and energies is one of the driving motivations behind The Blue House. Each member of the community joins with their own skills and projects, but is interested in the conversations and opportunities that arise out of proximity to other ambitious, creative individuals. Through learning, working, and spending time around those with shared values, overlapping interests, and diverse expertise, we support each other in doing our most meaningful work. 

A Collective

Proximity is profound

Meaningful engagement with each other and the city that surrounds us is essential to those that call the Blue House home. We encourage members to use the Blue House as a platform for learning. Collectively, members curate dinners, lectures, screenings, exhibitions, design clinics, workshops, classes, and other programming that enliven and enrich our collective community. At the same time, these events and resources are a means of reaching out to our neighbors and strengthening our connections to the area, as well as communities beyond O.C. Haley Boulevard and Central City.

Membership

Becoming a member of The Blue House means you are becoming a part of a supportive network of civic-minded people who want to work, learn, and collaborate together. We have strong shared values: to be good neighbors, challenge injustice, learn and experiment, and work with partners. Through this framework, we strive to do our best work and support each other to do so as well.

All members have access to the space, programming, and resources, and are encouraged to use The Blue House as a platform for learning and collaboration.
