What We Do

Friends of Tremé Culture aims to support, promote, and preserve the culture of the Tremė neighborhood so culture bearers can live, work and thrive in the Tremé community. 

To achieve our mission, we partner with sponsors across the globe, culture bearers, St. Augustine Catholic church, numerous nonprofits and civic organizations, volunteers, and the Tremé community.
