PARTICIPATORY SPORT FOR CRAFT ARTISTS
The Craftsmen’s Guild of Mississippi (The Guild) is seeking an Executive Director. The Guild is a nonprofit organization, dedicated to showcasing and selling crafts for and by the members of the guild. It is also dedicated to increasing the membership. The Craftsmen’s Guild of Mississippi has grown from a membership of 30 craftsmen – only two of the original 30 actually earned a living from craft – to more than 400 professional artisans from all across the Southeast. Our craftsmen have a tremendous impact on the Mississippi’s culture and are vital players in community planning and economic development. Guild craftsmen give workshops, free school demonstrations, teach and contribute to our strong cultural heritage as well as enrich our state with the availability of fine craft.
The Executive Director has overall responsibility for the day to day operations of the organization.
