OUR MISSION & PURPOSE: Now in its fourth decade, the Arts Council New Orleans is a private, nonprofit organization dedicated to supporting arts and culture in the city. Our mission is to improve quality of life in New Orleans by supporting, activating, and investing in our city’s greatest natural resource: our artists, cultural producers, and creative community.

OUR VISION: Art in Everything! Building on the abundant cultural wealth and creativity of our community, the Arts Council envisions a New Orleans in which arts and culture play a pivotal role in all areas of policy, planning, and placemaking. In pursuit of a more equitable, joyful, and resilient city, art and artists should be central to all community and economic development efforts – from public health to public safety, education to infrastructure.

This year we are raising funds for YAM: Young Artist Movement

Young Artist Movement (YAM) engages youth, artists, and communities in public art and place-making across New Orleans. YAM delivers community-engaged, high-quality public art research, design, and installation services transforming the lives of young artists in the community. In all of our projects, talented youth learn transferable entrepreneurial skills through a paid job in collaboration with professional artists, community groups, and clients.
