The Ella Project was launched in January 2004 by co-founders Ashlye Keaton and Gene Meneray in partnership of the Arts Council of New Orleans, Tipitina’s Foundation, and Tulane Law School to offer dedicated pro bono legal assistance to low to moderate income artists, musicians, and grass roots non profits of Louisiana. As ELLA grew, services in arts business assistance and development and cultural advocacy were added to its portfolio.
Since 2004, The Ella Project has served more than 2000 clients, offered in depth workshops across the gulf south, and has been profiled nationwide including by The New York Times and National Public Radio. Ella has won numerous honors and distinctions, including the Cultural Economy award from the State of Louisiana. In 2016, ELLA became a stand alone non profit organization, dedicated to the tenets of arts business development, legal services, cultural advocacy, and policy engagement.
