Efforts of Grace Inc./Ashé CAC is an emerging African American-led cultural institution in New Orleans. Our mission is to produce and support programs, activities and creative works that emphasize the positive contributions of people of African descent.
Efforts of Grace operates the Ashé Cultural Arts Center, a 6,600-square-foot multi-use facility located on Oretha Castle Haley Boulevard in Central City. In addition, Efforts of Grace is developing two other facilities – Ashé Too, a micro-business incubator, and Kuumba Cottage, a multidisciplinary arts education center for youth. All these endeavors will utilize culture to foster human development, civic engagement and economic justice in the African-American community
