About Louisiana Crossroads:
Concert, discussion and broadcast series; a record label; and an economic development initiative launched by the Acadiana Center for the Arts and the Lafayette Economic Development Authority in 2001.
Our innovative, ground-breaking partnership is designed to stimulate the growth of greater infrastructure in our region's burgeoning cultural entertainment industry.
Over the course of nearly 150 live events and dozens of live radio and Internet broadcasts, the Louisiana Crossroads concert series has provided a top-notch showcase for regional and visiting artists in an intimate and accessible format.
Through our Louisiana Crossroads Live, Louisiana Folk Masters and Festivals Acadiens Live series, Louisiana Crossroads Records has created a number of acclaimed and unique CD releases.
"All of our efforts are focused on growing and supporting our amazing cultural economy," notes Louisiana Crossroads Director Todd Mouton. "Since we began, we've worked to show our state's artists and traditions in a new light, with first-rate production values and high-quality contextual marketing materials."
At our shows, we work to bring artists and audiences closer together through conversation during and after Louisiana Crossroads performances. In 2005 we were recognized with the first-ever Cultural Economy Development Award at the Louisiana Governor's Arts Awards. "Our many diverse partnerships intertwine artistic and economic development on the airwaves and in venues across the state," adds Mouton.
Louisiana Crossroads Administrative Director Vicki Chrisman notes that our annual mini-tours and miniresidencies have been a great success. "We strive to make Louisiana Crossroads a special experience for our artists and audiences, and their feedback tells us our formula's working."
