Threadhead Cultural Foundation provides grants and assistance to musicians, artists, and others involved in endeavors relating to music and other artistic expressions whose work is in the tradition of preserving, promoting and disseminating the cultural heritage of New Orleans and the surrounding area of Louisiana.

Specifically, the Foundation seeks to assist those involved in endeavors relating to music and other artistic expressions whose work is in this style but who do not have the resources to produce and distribute their work, or in some cases to actively create their work because they lack basic financial resources to sustain their lives.

We invite you to visit our site often for updates on our projects and events and if you want more information on the Foundation and its activities, contact us.
