The DMI Entertainment Industry Studies program at Delta State University is going to be receiving a little extra financial support for the upcoming year.

The DMI Entertainment Industry Studies program at DSU has been awarded a $3,750 grant from the Mississippi Arts Commission to assist the center with programming designed to expose students throughout the region to the entertainment industry.

“The state’s arts community has displayed such resiliency during tumultuous times, and we are very pleased to provide support to these worthy organizations,” said Sarah Story, executive director of MAC. “These funds will help organizations recover from the past year and build upon their successes for future arts-based programming. MAC awards annual grants to individuals and organizations in nearly every area of the state, helping broaden the reach of arts to serve the state’s diverse population.” DMI Director Richard Tremmel said.

“Students get hands-on experience in many facets of the entertainment industry during the six-day camp.” The Mississippi Arts Commission is a state agency serving more than two million people through grants and special initiatives that enhance communities, assist artists and arts organizations, promote arts education and celebrate Mississippi’s cultural heritage.

MAC is funded by the Mississippi Legislature, the National Endowment for the Arts, the Mississippi Endowment for the Arts at the Community Foundation for Mississippi and other private sources.

The DMI is an independent center under the College of Arts & Sciences at Delta State whose mission is to provide students with a broad and thorough education in the technological, creative, and business areas of the entertainment industries.
