New Orleans Culture Evacuates to Lafayette
By Beth Fertig
October 10, 2005 – In the past six weeks, Lafayette Parish has absorbed as many as 30- or 40-thousand Hurricane evacuees. Most are from the New Orleans area - including some key players in the city's arts and music community. Those musicians and artists are now trying to help each other get employment,
healthcare and support while they're in "exile" from New Orleans.
