Arts Council solidifies leadership and advances mission that art transforms communities
Our members are the people who believe – like we do – that arts and culture is big picture, big meaning, and big value in New Orleans. They’re the people who want to be around others who think that, too.
2016 – 2018 Strategic Plan Culminates with LUNA Fête December 2018
Art experiences are an uplifting, spontaneous, and daily aspect of New Orleans life. We know that creative expression inspires, illumines, empowers, disrupts, stimulates, and heals. We work to further that.
Artists play a profound role in shaping our awareness, elevating our communities, exalting our possibilities, and furthering the forms within which art occurs. Supporting, engaging, and respecting artists is at the center of our work.
Kinesthetic and aesthetic surroundings shape our experience and sense of self; investments in civic design and art reflect the value we place on the well-being of our city and each other.
