Convening fosters an open dialogue among media artists, scholars and activists on media born artistic practices. It will explore the innovative practices and critical perspectives of photographers, filmmakers, printmakers and writers drawn from the long and dynamic history of media and art, through themes of history, representation, evidence, the archive, image making, identity, practice and presence.

We are proud to present the Arnold Newman Master Lecture Series, sponsored by Bangor Savings Bank. Please join us on Monday and Tuesday evenings throughout the summer in the Rockport Opera House for talks by, and conversations between, some of the incredible artists who are teaching at Maine Media Workshops + College.
This showcase demonstrates the exemplary work that is often created in the program. Looking at culture, society, autobiography, beauty and the environment; that is often what is cultivated in our students’ work each year. Each photographer is on a path and a journey toward technical accomplishment and personal growth. Digital printmaking and technique, historic 19th c. processes, multimedia and video storytelling, lighting, the history of photography, and professional development are all experienced and further supported by vigorous critiques. It’s a process and a philosophy that works – while we support each other in this dynamic journey looking for pictures and making short films.
