THE POWER OF PARTNERS FOR THE ARTS

  • Created in 1997, Partners for the Arts is a community alliance between the Pine Belt Region, and beyond, and the arts programs at Southern Miss including Art and Design, Dance and Theatre in the School of Performing and Visual Arts, the School of Music, and the Center for Writers in the School of Humanities.
  • Partners aims to promote arts education and expand access to world-class arts events and artists.
  • Provides thousands of dollars annually to underwrite arts projects through its grant program funding career performances, master classes, exhibits, workshops, and lectures.
  • Since its inception, Partners has raised more than $1.3 million through donations.
  • Your kindhearted support directly impacts our traditions of excellence in the arts.
