Our Alumni Network provides an opportunity to connect and revive the creativity and excitement found on our Rockport campus.
Students who have taken or faculty who have taught even one workshop at Maine Media are considered an alum. As an alum, you are part of a network of 35,000 alumni worldwide. Maine Media alumni are leading lives of purpose as photographers, filmmakers, book artists, writers, professionals and enthusiasts.
Dear friends, In Spring of 2020, we launched Maine Media's Alumni Network! Our aim was to keep alumni meaningfully engaged when we could not be together on campus. We created the weekly Alumni Lecture Series that offered stimulating conversations on a wide diversity of topics in photo, film, book arts, and writing. Our faculty shared their work and their wisdom on our visual culture. We also launched our LinkedIn page for alumni. The Alumni Lecture Series was wildly successful! It helped sustain a connection during a difficult time. The lectures were fantastic and alumni generously contributed to help sustain our annual fund. Thank you so much for being part of it! A couple of new things about the Alumni Lecture Series for Fall 2021: ---We are including a couple of guest lecture appearances by leading experts who are not (currently!) our faculty to bring additional perspectives to the community! Specifically, we have included lectures that are an offshoot of our Convening symposium on September 30. ---In an effort to be inclusive and broaden our community, the Alumni Lecture Series is now open to the public! You are welcome to invite friends and family to check out the schedule and register. Share the magic of Maine Media. The lectures are all virtual and free. Donations are encouraged to support Maine Media's annual fund.

Looking forward to 2022! For 2022, we are seeking additional ways to connect alumni to sustain new and old friendships and help foster the generation of artistic ideas. Stay tuned! If you have any ideas about ways for alumni to stay connected, always feel free to reach out to me. Beth Storey Alumni Relations and Advancement Officer [email protected] P.S. Don't forget to join Maine Media's LinkedIn group! It's a great way to sustain connection long after your workshop is over.
