Mission Statement

The Creative Alliance of New Orleans (CANO) was founded in 2008 as a network of cultural and creative producers, professionals, businesses, and nonprofit organizations based in New Orleans, Louisiana, whose mission is to provide training, education, and information for creative artists, cultural producers, and the community; to protect our cultural legacy; and to promote the revitalization of the city as a cultural and economic center.

Description

The Creative Alliance of New Orleans provides numerous resources for creative professionals across a variety of industries, including: visual, performing, design, media, literary and culinary arts. Services include professional development for working artists, cross discipline networking to promote collaboration and career opportunities, public tours of artist studios and private collections to encourage the purchase of art, and extensive advocacy initiatives to position New Orleans as a creative economic center.

Most recently, CANO has developed "Creative Futures", a creative arts and industries career development program that provides guidance, resources, training, and internship opportunities to encourage high school students to pursue further creative education and career opportunities.
