May 23, 2012 — We are happy to announce receipt of a very generous grant from the Betterment Fund, which has allowed us to begin work in earnest on a new initiative evolving from our national award-winning “Imagination Intensive Communities” program. “Maine’s Creative Communities” seeks to engage passionate leadership in selected towns and cities to leverage existing arts and cultural resources for economic benefits and improved arts education programming for young people. To learn more, see our “Programs” page, or go directly to “Maine’s Creative Communities”.

The board and staff of Maine Alliance for Arts & Education gratefully acknowledge a grant of over $4,500 from MaineShare, received in January 2013. The Alliance has been a long time member, and MaineShare’s ongoing support has been especially critical during our transition to new leadership and a new mix of programs.
