To All Cultural Leaders, Local Creatives and Lovers/Supporters of Art and Culture:
Many of you remember coming together in 2011 to envision an umbrella arts and culture organization for the Belfast area, one that could help coordinate between our many cultural nonprofits and events organizers, as well as market the region’s growing creative economy.
Through the Maine Arts Commission CCED Grant and the support of the City of Belfast, Our Town Belfast, Waterfall Arts, the Hutchinson Center and many volunteer community leaders, the Belfast Creative Coalition (BCC) was formed in 2012.
In this short time, BCC has created an online arts and culture directory and events calendar at BelfastCreativeCoalition.org, hosts a monthly ‘Calendar Sync’ meeting for event planning, networking and collaboration, launched Cultivate: Belfast Farm and Arts Trail and Fall Tour, taken on the coordination for Belfast Arts and started a membership program.
Please join us in a celebration of accomplishments as well as new visioning for the future work of BCC. We greatly appreciate your input and invite you to be a part of the Coalition!
