The Maine Media Alumni Network is an extraordinary network made up of 35,000 people living worldwide. Our alumni are leading lives of purpose as photographers, filmmakers, book artists, writers, professionals and enthusiasts.

Through the Alumni Network, new opportunities to connect will revive the excitement that’s found on our Rockport Campus. This will be a space for new learning, old friendships, and fresh artistic ideas, sustaining the tradition of Maine Media long after your workshop, certificate, or degree program ends. The good news is that this Alumni Network will live on when we’re able to gather together again! We’ll continue to bring you content, networking opportunities, and (let’s be honest) parties well into the future.

Here you’ll discover news about events, lectures, classes and get updates on programs and presentations to keep you meaningfully engaged.
