Maine Arts Commission’s Julie Richard speaks with a Belfast visitor in 2012.

Belfast — The Maine Arts Commission is coming to Waterfall Arts, 256 High St., Thursday, April 24, from 10 to 11:30 a.m. MAC is looking for artists, arts organizations, economic development professionals, educators, government and elected officials, tourism officials and anyone who is passionate about the arts, to attend this feedback meeting.

MAC Executive Director Julie Richard, who will attend the meeting, said the purpose of these meetings is to inform the Commission of the public’s perceptions of the cultural industry in Maine — both positive and negative — and to learn about any current relationships that exist across sectors and the results they are yielding.

“We want to support what’s working! We want to explore potential benefits and outcomes of smarter partnerships between the arts and culture sector and other sectors and to lay tracks for surveying or any other type of input from these various sectors that makes sense,” she said.

All are welcome to attend. For more information or to register, visit or call 338-2222.
