The Maine Arts Commission offers tailored workshops to suit the needs of constituents throughout the state. Community members can contact the agency to request workshops on any topic that they would like to learn about in the cultural sector. Recent workshop requests have included grant writing, marketing, website development and tracking the success of online marketing.   

At times the Maine Arts Commission works with experts in the field to provide important information to people in the cultural sector and beyond.
