The Dixie Center for the Arts has been chosen as one of the 2022-2023 Jazz & Heritage Presenting Recipients as a part of the Community Partnership Grant from The New Orleans Jazz & Heritage Foundation. 

Since 1979, the Jazz & Heritage Foundation has invested proceeds from the New Orleans Jazz & Heritage Festival presented by Shell directly into the community with grants to fund projects that support the foundation’s mission. Over the last 10 years, over $12 million has been awarded in Community Partnership Grants. Grant categories include arts education programs (in-school and after-school), music and arts presenting organizations, cultural equity arts, and individual artists with media or documentation projects related to the Foundation’s mission. Over 500 applicants in the Community Partnership Grant program are receiving a total of $1.4 million in funding.

This grant will be used as the Title sponsorship to bring Louisiana music legends Louisiana’s LeRoux to Ruston to perform a live concert on Saturday, Jan. 14, 2023, at 7 p.m. Tickets for this concert may be purchased by visiting www.dixiecenter.org.

“We are honored to continue our annual tradition of distributing Community Partnership Grants in support of music, arts, and cultural heritage in Louisiana,” said Don Marshall, Executive Director of the New Orleans Jazz & Heritage Foundation. “These are your Jazz Fest dollars at work.”
