The New England Foundation for the Arts Idea Swap will take place in Worcester Massachusetts on November 7, 2013 (9:30am – 3:00pm at Mechanics Hall). The Idea Swap provides an opportunity for nonprofit presenting organizations to network, share project ideas and build partnerships that may qualify for funding from the Expeditions grant program. Registration for the Idea Swap is $50.
The Maine Arts Commission would like to encourage presenting organization staff from Maine to attend. To do this we are providing a free shuttle service between Portland and the conference. The carpool will leave Portland (from the Portland Mall) at 7:00 a.m., on November 7, to arrive in Worcester at 9:30 a.m. The vehicle will leave Worcester at 3:00 p.m., arriving back in Portland around 5:30 p.m.
If you would like to take advantage of this free service please contact Kerstin Gilg at the Maine Arts Commission. This offer will expire when the seats are filled. This trip was extremely popular last year and we expect seats to go quickly, so please contact Kerstin as soon as possible to avoid disappointment. Kerstin can be reached through e-mail at firstname.lastname@example.org, or by phone at 207/287-6719.
