Bethany Bultman – President and Director, NOMAF

If you ask Bethany Bultman what she does, she will tell you, “I am the crust of bread the puts the cultural peas on the fork.”  Her career goal is to be redundant. “I will know I succeeded if no one recalls that New Orleans was once an early grave for its cultural icons.”  Her career as a journalist in New York took her the world over.  As a cultural anthropologist, she is known for her vibrant insights and historical commentary.  She and he husband Johann are civil rights activists who founded the New Orleans Musicians’ Clinic in 1998 and subsequently the New Orleans Musicians’ Assistance Foundation in 2005.  Today, Bultman remains a vibrant Tour de Force in the New Orleans community. email: bb@neworleansmusiciansclinic.org
