To bring: Laptops or tablets are not needed for any of the discussions or activities. Cameras and cell phones are welcome.
Attire: Summer in New Orleans is warm/hot and muggy. Please dress comfortably (jeans, t-shirts, etc. are welcome). If you chill easily, bring a jacket or light sweater for indoors. Going from the hot muggy outdoor climate in New Orleans into air conditioned buildings can make you feel cold. Pop-up showers are common in New Orleans during the summer so it is a good idea to bring a raincoat/jacket and/or umbrella.
Parking: If you will have your own transportation during the workshop, parking is available in the Diboll Complex/Parking Garage on the north side of the Tulane campus, about a 5-10 minute walk to the Lavin-Bernick Center. This garage has a daily rate of $5.00. Parking is also available along St. Charles Street for free but can fill-up early. If you prefer or will require public transportation options, the streetcar is also an option. Rides are $1.25 per ride or you can purchase a day pass. You can also download and use the Le Pass app to pay.
