Board The MotherShip Today!

MotherShip Foundation is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization dedicated to encouraging social change by improving the quality of life for Louisiana residents through the promotion of arts, culture, and recreation.

MotherShip Foundation was founded in 2005 in response to the cultural aftermath of Hurricane Katrina. The organization’s flagship program is The Mid-City Bayou Boogaloo. This free music and arts festival has enabled MotherShip Foundation to reinvest in the community by planting oak trees along Bayou St. John, launching an anti-litter initiative, and becoming a valued community partner to organizations throughout New Orleans that rely on the annual Mid-City Bayou Boogaloo to generate exposure and raise funds for their services. In 2016, the Foundation is excited to expand programming to Louisiana’s Northshore through the First Annual Festival Bonfouca. As MotherShip grows and prepares for the future, we hope that our passion for arts, culture, and recreation helps improve your quality of life and inspires your own passions. Please consider becoming a member, coming out to our festivals, or supporting our programs.
