Indigo Arts Alliance connects Black and Brown artists from around the world with Maine’s artists of African descent through a multidisciplinary artist-in-residency program that embodies a Black-led approach to creativity, community-building, and mentoring. We are an incubator for Black artists. We amplify the creative voices and visions of global and local artists and facilitate cross-cultural collaboration using a multidisciplinary approach. This approach is exemplified by Indigo’s Artist-in-Residence program and the mentor-mentee relationships central to it.
We work with selected artists to design public engagement events, workshops, artists talks’ and symposiums. Programs are relevant to our artists’ creative practice in ways that honor their individual arts heritage, ethnic roots and expressions of cultural resilience. This effort can include partnering with organizations and institutions to strengthen and build connections to the global arts movement.
Another extension of our mentoring model is within our internship program. Our Fall 2021 Internship application is now open! Application will remain open until 11:59 on September 11th, 2021. Fall internships will begin, Monday, September 20th, 2021.
Currently we have two internships available: Communication and Marketing Administration Internship and Studio Arts and Programming Administration Intern. For questions on either internship, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org
