Our mission is to promote the diverse artistic and cultural resources of Livingston Parish, to support established and emerging artistic endeavors, and to stimulate public support for the arts.
Our focus for 2014 - 2016 is to introduce "Learning through Art" in the elementary schools in Livingston Parish. This project shows how reading, writing, math and history can be learned through both visual and performing arts.
The ACLP is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization that was started by a group of volunteers who realized that communities with strong arts and cultural values have strong economic and educational advantages. Since its inception, the ACLP has been a catalyst for artistic development in our area. Our organization ensures a rich, multi-faceted heritage for present and future generations.
The Arts Council of Livingston Parish received a Decentralized Art Funding Grant for "Organizational Support" from the Arts Council of Greater Baton Rouge in cooperation with the Louisiana Division of the Arts, Office of Cultural Development, Department of Culture, Recreation, and Tourism and Louisiana State Arts Council.
