Welcome to a playground and classroom where creative adults can practice the art of being well. Each program below has a full line-up of mental health self-care activities!

About Us

Care for Creatives represents a unique partnership between Southern Rep Theatre and the New Orleans Musicians’ Clinic. Our programs unite New Orleans’ creative community with mental health practitioners in a sanctuary space to promote resilience through enriching workshops and engaging events. Supportive activities are centered around personal development, psychological education, and healing with drama, music, visual art, movement, guided relaxation, and other expressive forms.

Our Mission

Care for Creatives extends Southern Rep Theatre’s mission to sustain and nurture those who encompass New Orleans’ cultural economy by collaborating with the New Orleans Musicians’ Clinic’s You Got This goal to promote optimal mental health self-care amongst creatives. Together we strive to ensure the wellbeing of New Orleans’ creative community by providing accessible, effective outreach programs with measurable outcomes.

Who We Serve

Care for Creatives caters to the unique needs of New Orleans’ creative professionals. Creativity can be expressed on stage and in the studio or behind the scenes and in the office. From the entertainment industry to visual and culinary arts, all self-identified creators are welcomed to attend our inclusive programs.

Pop in to practice self-care through various healing and educational activities and stay for NADA ear acupuncture and a weekly community pot-luck. Drop-ins welcome.
