Welcome to the official website of the Yoknapatawpha Arts Council!

Founded in 1975 the Yoknapatawpha Arts Council remains committed to a diverse offering of artistic and cultural opportunities. Each year, YAC creates and delivers an exciting package of projects, programs and good works in the spirit of its mission to the community. Each year the staff, the board and volunteers work to present over 300 days of art programs ranging from students programs, exhibits by emerging artists, live theatre productions, concerts, classes, and independent film screenings.

The Arts Council assists over 20 various groups each year. This is possible only through the support of individuals and businesses. The membership drive is one of the key fundraising tools that enable us to present free art camps for children in the summer, concerts in the Grove, live music at The Powerhouse, a rotating schedule of free art exhibits, to acquiring all equipment to present live productions by Theatre Oxford, Leda Swan and others at the Powerhouse Community Arts Center.
