Bio: ABOUT ASHÉ CULTURAL ARTS CENTER Ashé Cultural Arts Center is an initiative of Efforts of Grace, Inc., a not-for-profit, 501(c)(3), organization that creates and supports programs, activities, and creative works emphasizing the contributions of people of African descent. Located in Central City, the Center provides opportunities for art presentations, community development, artist support, and the creation of partnerships that amplify outreach and support efforts. During post-Hurricane Katrina recovery, it has acted as a community-based center for the activities of ReBuild New Orleans, and has taken a leadership role in implementing the strategy to repopulate the Central City neighborhood with its former residents and new like-minded neighbors. Further, the Center boasts a repertoire of original theater works that are available for touring, and provides sponsorship for many private, public, community-focused, and family-oriented events.
