FAQ

How you do you choose the culture bearers who receive support?

Mostly we connect with pre-existing culture groups like Mardi Gras Indian Tribes, Babydoll groups, Social Aid and Pleasure Clubs. We ask them to refer folks to us who could use some support. This is how we have been able to connect with many amazing people who make New Orleans what it is.
