Project Spark is an arts and culture initiative that infuses community, culture, the arts, and education. Created by artists for artists and the community that supports them. Project Spark is a part of our urban renewal initiative that strives to grow redeveloping areas by identifying properties in urban areas and recreating these spaces into centers that utilize arts and culture to stimulate economic and social change. By creating community art galleries, theaters, and creative spaces to host community programs, functions, and educational sessions, Project Spark aims to renew our neighborhoods from the inside out by creating vibrant, community focused areas with accessible programming for all. We welcome partnership opportunities with community organizations, residents, artists, officials, and social innovators as we grow our arts and culture programming to make a difference in every urban community across the nation.

Broadmoor, a developing urban area in the heart of Orleans Parish in New Orleans, LA is beginning to rebuild after flooding and storm damage destroyed the neighborhood. Local organizations have created affordable housing opportunities, and the state of Louisiana has passed tax legislation intended to increase entrepreneurship in the area. The current environment creates a unique opportunity to establish creative places during the development of the neighborhood.

Project Spark creates facilities for artists of all genres to have a place to grow their endeavors while also harnessing arts and culture in order to create social and economic change.  Although New Orleans has a deep arts history, many currently emerging artists encounter barriers financially and socially when they attempt to cross the threshold of entering these existing arts organizations or attempting to utilize these state of the art facilities.

Project Spark projects and initiatives provides an outlet for these artists and those that support them to network, learn, and grow.
