Ideas matter. Opportunities for intellectual exchange matter. In efforts to contribute to thoughtful engagement, Machiah Center convenes public programs with writers, activists, and citizens throughout Maine. Some events are held over the course of an evening, others are ongoing community-based explorations.
Machiah Center presents talks by writers and hosts reading groups in libraries and other community spaces.
Machiah Center sponsors community-based explorations of social and political issues using books, films, and guest speakers.
Machiah Center collaborates with other non-profits in Maine to strengthen democracy, political education, and social justice.
