From the Executive Director

Thank you for visiting our website! It has never been easier to plug yourself into the arts in Southwest Louisiana and learn about the many things we have to offer residents, visitors, and businesses. Our website allows you to download a grant application, schedule your weekend with our live music listings and extensive arts calendar, learn about the historic Central School Arts & Humanities Center, and experience the impact the arts have across the five parish region.

The Arts Council endeavors to support, nurture, and create arts and cultural scenarios for Lake area residents.  We are in sync with the vibrant needs of a growing region and serve as both advisor and assistant to people and programs in our community.  Our mission is to interweave public and private funding with an extensive partnership network in order to produce quality arts programs and performances, exceptional educational programming, and engaging regional-specific events.

It is an exciting time for the Arts Council of Southwest Louisiana.  We encourage you to become a part of our community by joining the Council as a member or a sponsor.   The benefits of membership will be long-lived as we strive to create lasting progress for our community by propelling artistic events and brilliant entertainment into Southwest Louisiana’s future.  Enjoy your journey!
