We work for Louisiana’s people.

We champion the humanities to enrich lives and expand opportunities throughout Louisiana.

The humanities are the living, dynamic lens through which we see the world.

The humanities act as a gateway for every person to discover and realize their full potential and connect us to our history, traditions, and the values that define who we are.
