A new policy introduced by the CREATE initiative will allow artists and musicians to get fair compensation when they work for the Lafayette Consolidated Government.

LCG hopes the policy sets an example for others to pay artists and musicians for their work.

"This is basically a starting point for any artist that works with us through CREATE or through any other program that, that’s our line, that we’re not going to ask you to work for free, so we want you to come to us and say how much do we need to give you to work together," said Kate Durio with CREATE and who also serves as an assistant to the mayor-president.
