The arts are recognized for their unique ability to build community through creative human expression. As a year-round cultural center in rural Maine, Snow Pond expands on this concept by uplifting the entire Belgrade Lakes region through an inclusive economic strategy centered on creative placemaking. With our cultural, recreational, and educational assets, Snow Pond is simultaneously a tourist destination and pillar of the region’s quality of life that attracts and retains talent.
The University of Maine Augusta has been proud to advise Snow Pond Center for the Arts on the purchase and installation of distance learning technology. Connecting elementary and high school age students across our rural state to resources previously beyond their reach will provide them with additional pathways to higher learning and future success. - - Dr. Rebecca Wyke, President, University of Maine at Augusta
