We just couldn’t wait to give you a sneak peak of next summer’s workshop schedule…
We are still refining the final workshop for a total of eight weeks, in addition to two weeks of Show Incubation Residencies. Keep an eye out for the full 2017 Schedule in the coming weeks!
We were honored to remount our original performance commissioned by the Maine Office of Tourism for the biannual Maine International Conference on the Arts, produced by the Maine Arts Commission.
The performance was designed to breathe life into three target demographics identified by the Office of Tourism. Maine business owners had a chance to watch our “potential tourists” speak on what they would find engaging in a Maine vacation.
For the conference, our actors added an interactive element by taking specific questions from the audience while staying in character. Audience members loved the opportunity to role play, tailoring their their own unique story to attract new visitors!
We’re pleased to announce that the Maine Arts Commission has awarded Celebration Barn a $3,100 Organizational Development Grant for 2017.
The Organizational Development grant is designed to support capacity-building projects for arts organizations throughout Maine. Grant funds can help address issues that include positioning of the organization, board and staff development, planning, financial management, and marketing.
We will use the funds to support the the addition of a new part-time Development and Outreach position to our staff. This comes just as we’re hitting a fever pitch with the introduction of new programming, the construction of cabins, an expanded Show Series here at the Barn, Celebration in Community performances throughout Oxford Hills, and more!
The Maine Arts Commission is a dynamic state agency supporting Maine arts and culture through their grants and services. If you are not already familiar with the Maine Arts Commission, you can find out more on their website, www.mainearts.com.
