In one form or another, the arts have touched each of our lives in a positive way. For some of us, the arts are inseparable from who we are. Creating or experiencing another’s person’s creation makes us feel inspired, whole, energized or relaxed. In short, the arts help us live better in a variety of ways. That’s why this year’s conference theme is The Arts + Living Well.  

This October, we’ll explore the link between creativity and our physical, mental, spiritual, and social health as well as provide opportunities to network. This year’s conference features artist and television personality Wyatt Waters as the keynote speaker.

This year, the State Arts Conference will be held Thursday, October 24, 2019, at the Mississippi State Capitol Building in downtown Jackson from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m.
