Maine Craft Interview Project: Artists Question & Artists Answer


Emerging artist eligibility: Living in Maine, a current student or recent graduate from a craft related education program and interested in pursuing a career as a craft artist.

There is no application process, just a conversation to determine if the project is a good fit or how it may be adjusted to become a good fit.

To inquire as an emerging artist (or to nominate an emerging artist) or please call 207-205-0791 or email




The MCA Interview Project brings emerging craft artists together with established Maine craft artists in an interview, led by the emerging artist. The interviews are coordinated, recorded and shared by the Maine Crafts Association. The project serves to support and engage emerging artists by providing a platform and structure to access first hand craft career experiences one on one. The emerging artist designs interview questions and interviews an established artist of their choosing.


The interview process and content brings artists at different career points (and generations) together, fosters connections, community and storytelling, and provides a introduction of emerging artists to our craft community and a fresh content for the working, established artists we may already know and love!
