Maine Arts Iditarod

Join the Maine Arts Commission at the Harlow Gallery to discuss their new grant programs for arts organizations, artists, local arts agencies and schools.

Following a year of listening to members of the public and those most intimately involved with the arts field in Maine, the Maine Arts Commission has transformed a slate of complicated, niche-driven grant programs into a simplified but broad based set of offerings. This includes Partnership Grants for organizations, Projects Grants for organizations and artists, and Arts Learning grants for organizations and schools. Additions to the Maine Arts popular Individual Artist Fellowships and updates on some of the agency’s smaller grant programs will be discussed as well.
