Court 13 Arts is a New Orleans-based nonprofit arts engine whose mission is to support the creation of adventurous art that inspires the public. By developing innovative spaces to create and exhibit new work, we strive to build and support a creative community that generates ground-breaking artistic experiences across cultures and mediums.


Building off the the success of our four time Academy Award nominated film, Beasts of the Southern Wild, Court 13 Arts is in the unique position to create community-based art that reaches audiences on a global scale.   By investing in artists and makers within our community, we can forge an innovative model for sustainable local art-and film-making, rooted in unique collaborations, recycling materials, and education.
