New Orleans Airlift curates spectacular, experiential events for corporate partners in and outside of the Music Box Village. Our ongoing work with experimental artists and radical culture bearers aims to build collaborative "bridges" within New Orleans and across the world.

The Music Box Village is a place of wonder for our guests and we can share this same energy with your corporate events and branded activations. Programming in the Village accounts for over 12,000 visitors a year, and partnership or sponsorship through your organization can help to connect our loyal patrons to your mission.

Microsoft

Airlift was approached by 1MSQFT–Microsoft’s One Million Square Feet of Culture initiative to create two different spectacles celebrating local culture and underground art. Upstairs at the Wax Museum brought together luminaries from the world of Vogue and New Orleans Bounce for a never before seen competitive ball event. Rally Under the Bridge celebrated mobile culture of all kinds: car clubs, tall bikes, urban cowboys, and many more.

Red Bull

Red Bull has sponsored Airlift programming in and outside of the Music Box Village. They contributed product and financial support to the Snow Ball, a wintery celebration riffing on everything from ice skating routines, to Nutcracker ballerinas, to solstice rituals, and Santa himself. Red Bull also supported Porch Life: Detroit at Dabls's African Bead Museum, and are actively working with Airlift on future touring and fabrication jobs.

Google & Good Magazine

Music Box Village was the site of one of Google's Good Fest events in December 2016. The music festival was comprised of a series of concerts live-streamed for audiences around the world. Gogol Bordello and Nick Zinner (Yeah Yeah Yeahs) performed four sets of composed and improvised material on the musical houses over two nights.

Kickstarter & The Creative Independent

Airlift partnered with Kickstarter and The Creative Independent to bring Porch Life to Coney Island, NYC for two days of performances and public play on the structure. Situated between two iconic landmarks, the Wonder Wheel and Nathan's Deli, Porch Life drew hundreds of curious visitors who were new to the concept of "musical architecture."
