Mississippi: CORE Arts Program

The CORE Arts Initiative of the Mississippi Arts Commission (MAC) supports programs that are developed with and within the juvenile justice system. Detention centers, adolescent offender programs, alternative schools, holding facilities and community-based after-school and summer programs are all settings for CORE Arts programs. The CORE Arts Program Report: 1999 – 2007 (5.5 MB pdf) documents the program’s development and summarizes the findings of three studies conducted on the program. The report includes a history of the program, a description of the CORE Arts model, program outcomes and characteristics that advance CORE Arts goals. The report is intended to assist the MAC and its community partners as they consider the program’s future. For further information about CORE Arts and the program report, contact MAC Director of Community Development Allison Winstead.
