The National Assembly of State Arts Agencies has highlighted the Louisiana Creative Communities Initiative in its July newsletter.
LCCI is an innovative approach to creative placemaking. The program, designed and directed by The National Consortium for Creative Placemaking, provides coaches to 10 communities that want to enhance their communities and local economies through arts and culture. The coaches are all Louisiana residents -- many of them from the arts and public affairs communities -- who were trained by NCCP.
LCCI is produced by the Louisiana Office of Cultural Development.
