The Historic Carver Theater Foundation
The Historic Carver Theater Foundation is a registered 501c3 organization with a mission to support the cultural comeback of our community, through mentorship in arts and education, providing youth and young adults an opportunity to gain skills within the entertainment industry.
The entertainment industry is New Orleans' economic lifeline. Through outreach and education programs, The Carver Theater Foundation will bring entertainment industry skills to our children and community that will translate into sustainable career opportunities well into the future.

Treme Arts Center, also known as the Historic Carver Theater Foundation, is a registered 501c3, not-for-profit, organization in New Orleans, Louisiana. The Foundation's mission is to support the Carver’s community cultural comeback through mentorship within arts and education by providing youth and young adults of our city the opportunity to gain skills within the entertainment industry.
New Orleans' young adults, ages 16-20, will be exposed to different trades and specialized skills within the entertainment industry's production services, thus lending to professional development and scholarship opportunities to further each student's training to help perpetuate and promote the music industry of New Orleans. We are creating a mentorship program that will teach students entertainment production services, with a focus on live performance venue operation skills, including mentoring in festival production. The skills learned will be transferable to career opportunities in conventions, hotels, music, films and festivals. We are addressing the need for experienced labor skills in the entertainment industry, which is New Orleans economic lifeline. The mentorship program will keep our students off the streets, continue their music development and provide hands-on training with entertainment industry leaders as to how to operate a performance venue- from the recording studio, sound engineering, lighting design, stage management, booking production, box office skills, ushering, event planning to catering and food management.
