Culture Aid Nola was established in response to the COVID-19 crisis in New Orleans.

Culture Aid NOLA (CAN) is a collaborative relief effort of several local non-profits in the culture and hospitality sectors uniting to provide direct assistance, resources and information to underserved members of the community. We offer no-barrier aid to all who need our help, reaching those most vulnerable, who would be otherwise unable to access assistance.or

Culture Aid Nola is staffed and led by: Erica Chomsky Adelson, Andrea Heming, Erica Dudas, Ethan Ellestad, Aaron Taylor, Mandi Bordelon, Maggie Bondi, 
Katie Miller, Liz Moser and Alyssa Berry.
