Call for Projects: What does the Franco-Louisiana Relationship Mean to You?

To cap off the New Orleans Tricentennial celebrations, Consul General Vincent Sciama is offering the front yard at the Résidence de France on Prytania street in New Orleans for a student art project. No knowledge of French is necessary.


Students will be able to use the space in front of the house to design and install a work of art that illustrates the relationship between France and Louisiana.

The winning group will receive a stipend of $800 to complete their project.

Groups of students between the ages of 15-18 with a supervising adult from the same Louisiana school or institution are eligible to apply. No knowledge of French is necessary.

The winning project will be selected in mid-November.

The funds will be provided after the selection to cover necessary expenses such as art supplies, bus trips, etc.

The project must be completed before the end of the school year (May 2019)

An unveiling ceremony will take place at the residence, and the winning team will benefit from a new partnership with the Consulate.

Please send your completed application (below) to before Wednesday, October 31 2018.
