On #GivingTuesday, a national day of philanthropy, please consider making a contribution to the Acadiana Center for the Arts

AcA infuses art and culture into daily life, bringing joy and inspiration to the people of Acadiana. You may not know that we serve every public school in both Lafayette and St Landry parishes by bringing live performances and arts-integration into classrooms. Opportunities like these can lead to a lifetime of art, learning, and participation. These services need your help.

Together last year we raised close to $180,000 to support our programs in schools, our world-class performance series in Downtown Lafayette, and our art exhibitions (which remain free to the public with your support). With that support we funded 290 projects that impacted the lives of more than 300,000 people across eight parishes. We partnered with schools to provide the youth opportunity and access to art and culture—regardless of ability to pay. To continue to build these bridges, we need your support. 

Your donation says you believe in the power of the arts to build and transform communities, in the need for new artists who serve as change-makers and leaders, and in the need for a place in our community that matches the welcoming culture and joyful life of which we are so proud.

Please join us, and raise your voice.
