Mississippi is home to a wide range of traditional art forms and distinct community events. The music, crafts, and other traditions help the state's residents to pass on their beliefs to younger generations and reinforce their community's shared identity.
The Folklife website is part of the Mississippi Arts Commission's ongoing effort to increase awareness in the state's traditional arts and culture. It features information on the artists and communities we have been active in documenting and providing support for through our programs and services.
