When: Sunday, October 28, 2018 form 1:00 p.m. to 3:30 p.m. at 196 State Street in Augusta at the Maine Arts Commission office.


Goals of the summit are to have participants share opinions about the sector, contribute to a cohesive growth strategy for Maine Folk, strengthen their own networks, and enjoy the great folk arts leaders of Maine.

The summit will offer a facilitated discussion of Maine folk leaders followed by breakout conversations focused on specific topics.

Modeled on Folk Arts International and NERFA, the group has six areas of concentration to achieve its mission.

1. Education
2. Networking
3. Advocacy
4. Professional development
5. Field development
6. Consumer development
