Join local artist, Kelsey Billiot, for this tool-building three-part series on how to build a sustainable practice as a working artist.

Each session is action-oriented and designed to be stand alone. Attending all three will give you a holistic view on sustainable practices. Each participant will walk away with a workbook designed by Kelsey to aid you in your entrepreneurial journey. 

PART 2 Executing the Work will focus on the below:

• Getting organized

• Curriculum Documentation

• Analyzing results

• Documenting for marketing

This is a hybrid session. We hope to see you in person at Acadiana Center for the Arts for this session but should this not be possible, zoom details will be provided once payment has been processed. This session will also be recorded and sent to each participant following the workshop.


Kelsey Billiot has been teaching in classrooms around Lafayette Parish with the PACE program since 2015. As a teaching artist, she crafts creative movement lessons that include arts integration, social emotional learning skills, and curriculum connections.

Through this work, she has executed grants and programs that expand upon movement into self care and wellness. Her art is expressed through Space Lafayette, an artisan dance company.

She created Breathe & Move in the Fall of 2019, as a response to the growing ask for movement and wellness in classrooms. She finds inspiration in nature and real life experience to enrich her work. In 2022, her work evolved to speaking to educators and counselors on these topics.

Our mission is fostering art and culture in Acadiana.

Founded in 1975, Acadiana Center for the Arts (“AcA”) is a community-supported nonprofit organization that fosters art and culture in Acadiana. Since its founding, AcA has developed as a major force, shaping the future of public education and community development in South Louisiana.

AcA supports the creation of new works of art, exhibits, festivals, performances, and public art across an eight-parish region that includes Acadia, Evangeline, Iberia, Lafayette, St. Landry, St. Martin, St. Mary, and Vermilion Parishes.  

AcA aims to bring equitable access to the arts and supports fair compensation of artists. On average, AcA serves over 300,000 people annually and provides fair compensation to 2,700 artists.  

In 2013, the AcA merged with the Performing Arts Society of Acadiana (“PASA”), whose mission was to educate, inspire, entertain, and culturally enrich the people of south Louisiana by providing local access to a diverse range of the performing arts. This merger supported the vision of both organizations and provided much-needed support to PASA’s programs. Founded in 1989, PASA served as a leading voice in the performing arts in South Louisiana for close to three decades.
