Maine Performs! is an initiative started by Maine arts organizations in late 2009. With support from the Maine Arts Commission and the Maine Office of Tourism it has grown into a 22 member consortium. The initiative promotes the entire performing arts sector in Maine through collective strength and a national campaign to build awareness of the quality of music, dance, theatre and film within the state.
The promotion began with the creation of a full-color brochure that provided information about Maine's unique and diverse performing arts offerings. This brochure was released at the Governors Conference on Tourism in February 2011 and is available at targeted tourist destinations and performing arts venues throughout the region as well as online.
In addition to the brochure, both the Maine Arts Commission and Office of Tourism have devoted sections of their websites to the performing arts. The tourism website allows performing arts groups to add themselves to a vast database that creates one searchable directory for people to find events and venues.
