Coahoma Collective is seeking prospective cooperative members to seed and grow a live/work endeavor in Clarksdale, Mississippi. The cooperative is based in a downtown general store & garden center called Collective Seed & Supply Co. Members will live on-site, run the store, and operate Travelers Hotel, a new, 20-room boutique hotel that opened February 2019.
These businesses provide ample time for the people who operate them to pursue their dreams, whether in the arts, performance, journalism, humanitarian work or otherwise! These new members will join an emerging and ongoing creative placemaking effort downtown.
We are looking for creative folks (artists, writers, brewmasters, programmers, etc) with a penchant for/experience in hospitality/retail to join us and help us operate and grow these businesses, build on-site capacity for future members, and use your time and talents to create, build community, and explore what has been dubbed the "most Southern place on earth." Benefits include flexible work schedule, on-site living and some studio 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.
