Tired of the day-to-day grind? Ready to make a change? Looking to dig into a welcoming, creative community and make a positive impact? Come work with us in Clarksdale!
Coahoma Collective is a nonprofit driving arts-driven, community-inclusive development in downtown Clarksdale. We seek prospective co-op members to contribute to an emerging and ongoing creative placemaking effort right here in the Mississippi Delta!
This is a life/work endeavor, organized around a worker-owned cooperative business (a general store & garden center) called Collective Seed & Supply Co. Member/owners live on-site, own/run the store, and operate Travelers Hotel, the new, 20-room, downtown boutique hotel we opened February 2019.
We’re looking to attract folks who wish to live creatively and build community -- not just artists per se, but anyone with an entrepreneurial streak and a penchant for/experience in hospitality/retail/extreme kindness. Join us and help us operate and grow these businesses, build on-site capacity for future members, and develop programs and events that engage locals and visitors alike!
Benefits include a flexible work schedule (about 25 hours/week), on-site living (some available now; some in development) and potential studio/work space. We endeavor to work with individuals who are entrepreneurial, driven, committed to community action while possibly living outside of their comfort zone, and making sure that things that need to get done, are done.
