Celebrating the Written Word

Our second annual "Celebrating the Written Word" literary festival was a great success - all our panels, master classes and lectures went well, and our closing reception was the icing on the cake.

HRAC wishes to thank its sponsors who helped with this year's festival, and we are delighted to thank our special guest speakers, who entertained us and gave us very interesting insights and perspectives on writing. We cannot wait for next year.

Be sure to look at the HRAC website on Friday afternoon for the online postings of all the winning entries from the 2015 "So You Think You Can Write" writing contest. HRAC would like to send out a big congratulations to everyone who placed.

What's new?

HRAC is happy to announce a change in our gallery hours. We are now open on Monday and closed on Saturdays.


The Hammond Regional Arts Center (HRAC) supports, promotes, and coordinates visual, performing, and literary arts in Tangipahoa Parish and surrounding parishes. Our primary mission is to enrich lives through quality arts education, develop an appreciation of the arts within individuals, and introduce the public to professional exhibitions, performances and literature.

The Hammond Regional Arts Center is supported in part by a Decentralized Arts Funding Grant from the Arts Council of Greater Baton Rouge in cooperation with the Louisiana Division of the Arts, Office of Cultural Development, Department of Culture, Recreation and Tourism, and Louisiana State Arts Council.


Our sincere gratitude goes out to our many supporters! Special thanks to those who have shown support of our efforts to promote the arts.
