Monday, February 21, 2011

We’re proud to announce that NolaVie, an arts and culture site in New Orleans, La., launches today.

Founders Sharon Litwin and Renee Peck, along with their team, worked tirelessly over the past several months to decide on contributors and flush out the details of a partnership with NOLA.com, the online site of the New Orleans Times-Picayune.

From Peck’s welcome post:

NolaVie, we decided, would be a place where individuals and organizations can gather under one tent, to talk about who we are and why we love the city. About what’s going on here, and what we think about it. We wouldn’t create sections devoted specifically to cuisine or music or theater, but rather we’d start conversations about whatever captured our fancy on a particular day.

Visit NolaVie here.

Congrats to everyone involved! We look forward to watching this site grow.
