Program Authorization: R.S. 25: 891-900

PROGRAM DESCRIPTION

The mission of this program is to provide a catalyst for participation, education, development and promotion of excellence in the arts. This program supports established arts institutions, nurtures emerging arts organizations, assists individual artists, encourages the expansion of audiences and stimulates public participation in the arts. It is the goal of this program that an increasing number of Louisianians and visitors participate in and experience arts activities. It is also the goal of this program to provide meaningful support of the state’s emerging and established arts organizations and advance a public environment that recognizes and assists artists as valuable state resources. There are two activities in this program: Administration and Grants.

OBJECTIVES AND PERFORMANCE INDICATORS

For budgeting purposes, performance indicator values are shown for the prior fiscal year, the current fiscal year, and alternative funding scenarios (continuation budget level and Executive Budget recommendation level) for the ensuing fiscal year (the fiscal year of the budget document).
