Together, the Acadiana Center for the Arts and Lafayette Economic Development Authority offer ArtSpark, an Individual Artist Funding Program. The purpose of ArtSpark is to directly support artists in Acadiana, especially those with otherwise limited opportunities, to expand their bodies of work as a professional and offer outreach to the community. These awards offer assistance to emerging, mid-career, and mature artists for specific, short-term projects.
