Details explaining the Arts Council of Greater Baton Rouge
Creative Relief Efforts: Taken directly from 

With devastating flooding having swept through South Louisiana, thousands of families, individuals, have lost their homes and belongings.  Artists, in particular, have been personally and professionally devastated.   With significant lost to property, artists in our area are without spaces to rehearse, work, and perform, and have lost dance shoes, musical instruments, canvases, paint, and many other supplies and equipment.  

Through Creative Relief, the Arts Council of Greater Baton Rouge identifies artists who have lost or incurred damage to address their needs and provide replacement materials. Financial contributions to Creative Relief help artists with immediate assistance in their time of need, and as they rebuild in the affected area.  Donations need not be designated though donors may designate funds to a specific arts genre.
