We launched the Delta Creative Business Challenge in August 2018 for Coahoma County Residents. Six participants receive free entrepreneurship training utilizing the nationally recognized Work of Art curriculum developed by our project partner Springboard for the Arts. Participants will also learn about concepts related to community wealth, economic justice, and racial equity. The business categories include Art, Film/Media, Graphic Design, Music, and Photography. We prioritized selecting existing businesses owned by people of color and women. Participants met twice a week from 6:00pm-8:00pm during the entire month of August which will led to a community pitch competition and pop-up shop on September 1st. Trent Calvin a local photographer won the grand prize package valued at $1,000 * to support their business.
