The Yoknapatawpha Arts Council invites you to become part of the creative arts process by purchasing a share in its Community Supported Arts (CSA) program! The CSA is part of the Arts Incubator program that supports artists living and working in North Mississippi. When you purchase a share, you will receive a piece of artwork from the artist of your choice and be invited to a special reception to honor the CSA artists. You can follow your artist from initial idea through the creative process. Connect with the unique stories that define our community!

The Impact

The Mississippi creative economy makes up 16% of the overall economy of the state and draws in over 22 million tourists. Whether visiting the Blues Trail, attending Double Decker Festival, or an Oxford Art Crawl, the arts are big business and draw people together to engage in community building. Last year arts organizations in Lafayette County spent over $2 million. The impact of the arts in our community isn’t just aesthetic, it economic!
