The Greater Jackson Arts Council has a new series that provides the finest caliber of programming for artists in the Jackson metropolitan area. Through our titular Creative Empowerment Lecture Series, Food Truck Fridays, High Note Jam, and the ArtsTribe Monthly, we work to provide relevant resources for the artists in our community to strengthen their craft, advance their careers, and feel the support and encouragement to pursue their artistic endeavors. This program is provided through a strong partnership and grant from Visit Jackson!
The Greater Jackson Arts Council, Visit Jackson!, and Blue Cross Blue Shield host Food Truck Friday in Smith Park from 11:30 am - 1:30 pm. Food trucks line the West Street and Yazoo Street providing an array of delicious cuisine for downtown workers, families, visitors, and Jacksonians. Music floods the park with upbeat vibes that get your body moving during the lunchtime stretch. .
High Note Jam is a program that provides free downtown concert series staged in the ArtGarden public green space at the Mississippi Museum of Art and a targeted initiative to support local musicians with special events (Jackson Indie Music Week) and expanded creative opportunities.
