Artists Engaged in Our Community

Committed to cultivating a spirit of service, Artist Corps New Orleans connects artists with opportunities to engage in volunteer outreach in local schools. This short video highlights our partnership with internationally acclaimed violinist Nadja Salerno-Sonnenberg, Resident Artist at Loyola University New Orleans.

New Orleans Culture Corps

Artist Corps New Orleans also provides compensated outreach opportunities for our city's culture and tradition bearers – Mardi Gras Indians, social aid and pleasure club members, traditional and contemporary jazz musicians, and others – securing funding to pay these artists in support of our local cultural economy. We work with school faculty to integrate these experiences into the academic curriculum with authenticity and impact.
