The Treme Artists Collective is a 501(c)(3) focused on supporting New Orleans street musicians who perform traditional New Orleans jazz and brass band music.
The more senior musicians of this select group of artists come from a lineage of musicians who were ensconced in New Orleans music and cultural traditions. This heritage was passed down through the generations by word of mouth, apprenticeships and lifelong friendships.
Our members continue to contribute to the foundation laid down by New Orleans musicians of past generations. These cultural ambassadors play an integral role in nurturing the cultural economy. This work is an invaluable benefit to countless tourists, locals, businesses, and the City of New Orleans itself.
There is no business, organization, or government agency that is expressly providing support for this distinctive community of musicians. As such, the TAC is committed to providing opportunities, funding, and other forms of support for these uniquely qualified musicians who are vital to the culture of New Orleans.
