AcA At the Acadiana Center for the Arts we strive to enrich lives through art and education.

Our home is the eight-parish region of south Louisiana known to many as Cajun and Creole Country, or more commonly, Acadiana. This part of the bayou state is home to people of French Acadian, Creole, African, Anglo, German, Caribbean and Native American ancestry, and is known worldwide as one of the most unique culture pockets in North America.

The area's unique cultural mix - translated through its vibrant music, distinctive cuisine, burgeoning folk and contemporary art and varied cultural attractions - makes Acadiana the second most-visited tourist-destination spot in Louisiana.

The AcA is a "cultural environmentalist" charged with cultivating the region's art resources. We were incorporated in 1975 as the result of a far-reaching two-year feasibility and cultural needs study. Creating new opportunities for artists, nurturing new organizations, developing and promoting the activities of existing arts and cultural organizations and filling community-programming needs are still the goals of the AcA.
