strings           Arts and Culture 

Promoting the relevance of music, dance, theater, visual arts and creative writing to enrich and enhance quality of life and community.

We invest in organizations and programs that stimulate imagination, provide access to the arts and arts education, and foster community through the arts.  We are especially interested in educational programming for low-income and underserved youth audiences that celebrates creativity and provides meaningful experiences with the arts. We support organizations that create and present performances and programs in southern Maine.
