Project Connect

Have you seen these boxes around town?

Why are they there? Because on October 25th we’ll be creating a community mural in downtown Belfast, inspired by the designs and words inside these boxes. Use the boxes to express how you feel about the connections with our community.

This mural project is part of a larger event entitled What’s Art Got to Do With It? on November 1,2,3, a 3-day Arts and Activism conference sponsored by the Belfast Creative Coalition in partnership with the University of Maine, Hutchinson, on how the arts can help address the opioid epidemic in Maine.

We are also seeking original work by local working artists, responding to the theme  “Connect,” for inclusion in the mural design.

The conference summons the power arts to help address the opioid epidemic in Maine. Local artists may be invited to display work at the November 1, Friday evening Keynote event at the Belfast United Farmer’s Market.

The initial painting of the mural will begin at 4:00, October 25th, the Belfast Fourth Friday Art Walk, in the green space across from Rolley’s. We’ll be there every night afterwards, leading up to the conference.

To submit work please contact Jianne at Waterfall Arts.
