Please help support our vision to provide Arts to All.

Make a Gift Today

Upturn Arts have served Central City and the greater New Orleans since 2010, founded on the belief that everyone should have access to arts to grow and enrich their lives by following its vision of “Arts for All.”

Think back to being a young artist and having a curious mind.

What did you want to learn?
What did you want to create?
What were your ambitions?
What were your obstacles?
What tools did you need?


For many young artists in New Orleans, these questions are unfathomable because of the lack of resources and access. Upturn Arts wants to change this by making art accessible to all, regardless of income level, talent, or experience.

Your donation allows young artists to attend our programs with reduced or free tuition to find their artistic voice and build their confidence. Please consider donating to Upturn Arts as a one-time or monthly sustaining donor.

If you are a business, philanthropist, or foundation and would like to learn more about our programs, sponsorship opportunities, or major gifts, grants, and donations, please contact our Executive Director, Dana Reed.
