Maine Arts Commission expands service during crisis

Mar 20, 2020

STATEWIDE — The Maine Arts Commission continues to expand its resources and services amidst the COVID-19 public health crisis. It recently shared a survey for arts organizations that is being used to assess the impact of the outbreak on our nation's arts and culture sector. Based on the preliminary results, Maine is picking up traction in the number of respondents who have taken the survey.

Individual artists living in Maine are invited to take another survey here. It will be used as a means to collect data and aid policy makers who are on the front lines of arts advocacy networks and relief efforts at the federal, state, and local level. Please visit the resources page to take either survey and for more information that supports the creative sector.

In the coming weeks, the commission will be sharing information about further relief efforts that will be provided to the arts field. Stay tuned.

The Maine Arts Commission is here to support artists, arts organizations, educators, and communities. Please reach out with any questions, concerns, and suggestions. It is here for you. Be well and keep safe.
