Welcome to Houmaterrebonne.org, the Houma Regional Arts Council Web site. Here you will learn about upcoming events, exciting new projects and programs underway, fun ways to get involved and much more.
The mission of the Houma Regional Arts Council is to promote and provide cultural activities, through a partnership of public and private funding, which meets the needs of our individual communities.
The Houma Regional Arts Council, located upstairs in the Bayou Terrebonne Waterlife Museum, supports a number of programs designed to enhance the arts and to make them accessible to everyone in Terrebonne Parish. Through the Louisiana Decentralized Arts Funding Program grants and the Terrebonne Parish Arts Funding Program, the arts council provides over $85,000 in direct monetary support to artists and organizations in Terrebonne Parish and is responsible for administering the over $102,000 in Decentralized funds in Assumption, Lafourche, St. John the Baptist, St. James and St. Charles.
In addition to providing assistance to artists and organizations, the Houma Regional Arts Council provides programs such as the ArtSense Summer Visual Arts Camp, visual & performing arts shows, art workshops, artist lectures, grant writing workshops, an Outdoor Movie Series and a newsletter including a cultural calendar of events for Terrebonne Parish.
A new website with updated info is coming soon, thank you for your patience.
