Your Membership Ignites a SPACE in Maine for Arts, Artists & Ideas

SPACE Membership brings you closer to our artists and community, as well as nourishes a vibrant and healthy cultural landscape in Maine. The SPACE membership program starts at $50 or $25 for enrolled full-time students. We welcome donations of any size, but perks, discounts, and calendar mailings, come with a full membership.

SPACE is a multidisciplinary arts non-profit in Portland, Maine, grounded in the belief that vital communities are activated by experimentation, conversation, and camaraderie. As an alternative platform for local, national, and international artists, SPACE prioritizes original collaborations, risk-taking, and public engagement with programming across music, visual art, film, performance, literary arts and more. SPACE uses the top floors of its building to rent below-market-rate studios to local artists and run an artist-in-residence program. SPACE is also a partner in Andy Warhol Foundation Regional Regranting program, entering its 6th year administering Kindling Fund grants for Maine artists.
