Community Arts Program

Xavier Students in the Community

Through CAP, the Art Department encourages students to use their artistic skills to address concerns identified by communities in the Greater New Orleans area. To this end, CAP provides a range of both class-based and field-based opportunities for community engagement.

Students who are interested in working in community arts through CAP should contact the Program Director. Students are also encouraged to develop their own ideas for projects in collaboration with partners of their own choosing. CAP can help guide students through the process of identifying partners, creating projects, and obtaining project funding.
