Whether local or an occasional visitor, you know Midcoast Maine is a cultural destination, where many of us enjoy lively Arts and Cultural activities in our communities.

Please join us in the knowledge that the Arts are a vital part of this region.


Five Rivers Arts Alliance‘s mission is to strengthen communities through the arts, by encouraging creativity, lifelong learning, and participation in the arts. Preserving and celebrating our sense of place, our rural communities and vibrant downtowns, strengthening the economic vitality and impact of our creative sector.

Additional contributions, combined with annual membership dues, make up an important and growing part of our financial health, accounting for a significant percent of our annual budget. Current economic challenges and competition for grants and endowments create a perfect storm of success and struggle.

We are initiating changes, making it easier to support us. These changes include installation of online donation and online membership options, improving our membership benefits, holding quarterly membership meetings and staying connected with members through a regular newsletter, blog and Facebook. With your help we will achieve these improvements, continue our core programs and expand local participation, support and knowledge of our region’s arts, culture and heritage.

In donating finances you send your supportive voice to our visions. We are an organization where many contributions combine to make up a significant part of our budget, and without which we could not deliver the high-quality, free arts and cultural programming. We take pleasure in being the catalyst and connection for Arts and Cultural activities in this region we call home. Brunswick, Bath, Topsham, Bowdoin, Bowdoinham, Richmond, West Bath, Woolwich, Arrowsic, Georgetown, Phippsburg, Harpswell are the communities we strive to provide with a rich cultural experience.
