In Faubourg St. John we are blessed with an eclectic mix of great people. We have artists, sculptors, musicians, lawyers, doctors, captains of industry, and “average joes” (like me).

What is Creative Capital?
They are a nationally lauded organization who funds many exciting artists and projects every year. Creative Capital also offers cutting edge information on professional development to hundreds of artists each year. Creative Capital has never been brought to New Orleans before. This one of a kind workshop has been described as a “crash course in self-management, strategic planning, fundraising and promotion” for artists of all creative genres. This workshop takes artists on a two and a half day retreat led by nationally renowned arts professionals. The experience is limited to 24 artists from Louisiana. All applications will be reviewed by a selection committee with the goal of assembling a very diverse group of artists from varied artistic genres and cultural backgrounds. Applicants must create original works. Visual artists, composers, filmmakers, choreographers and all other mediums are encouraged to apply. The Creative Alliance and Moving Stories believe that this program presents an opportunity for Louisiana artists to learn new methods in improving their professional careers in the arts. Please go to this website http://cano-la.org to apply.
This program is able to be presented thanks to the Joan Mitchell Foundation, Creative Capital, National Performance Network and in kind support from the Joan Mitchell Center.
